States should ban all driver use of cell phones and other portable electronic devices, except in emergencies, the National Transportation Board said Tuesday.

The recommendation, unanimously agreed to by the five-member board, applies to both hands-free and hand-held phones and significantly exceeds any existing state laws restricting texting and cellphone use behind the wheel.

DISLIKE!

Busy, productive people need to talk and text while driving in order to jumpstart this economy!

Yes, some of them will die, but it’s a net win because the benefits outweigh the costs.
