Federal Ban On Texting And Trucking

February 4, 2010 at 7:09 am Leave a comment

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) has prohibited interstate commercial drivers (truckers, bus drivers, etc.) from texting while driving. USDOT follows several states (including Utah) that ban all drivers from texting while driving. According to USDOT, research shows that on average, when texting while driving at 55 mph, drivers actually are travelling the length of a football field without actually looking at the road. Other studies have suggested that use of electronic devices while driving is similar to driving after drinking alcohol.
