There's a report that U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood wants a federal ban on cellphone use and texting while driving. LaHood's also taken his push to Facebook:
We have an obligation to help spare our fellow citizens the heartbreak of losing a loved one because someone couldn’t put down their cell phone.Meanwhile, LaHood's apparently not so bothered by distractions like eating behind the wheel or putting on make up. "Not everyone does that," Reuters quotes him as saying. "But everyone has a cell phone and too many of us think it is OK to talk on our phones while we are driving."
So, LaHood thinks every driver has a cellphone, but not every driver eats?
