Driver Text Messaging

Posted on September 19, 2008
California's Public Utilities Commission is banning cellphone use by train engineers a week after a Metrolink crash in Los Angeles took 25 lives and badly injured other passengers. The engineer was text messaging that day, though it's not clear yet whether that was the cause of the collision. The PUC also oversees chauffeured transportation. California, like many other states, recently banned the use of hand-held cell phones in cars, requiring drivers to use speaker phones or Bluetooth. Communicating with chauffeurs in California and several other states should be regulated by operators and not so much by state governments.
