Phones in cars? Awww, go ahead.
Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, isn’t endorsing the National Transportation Safety Board’s recommendation to ban all phones, even hands-free, from the car. LaHood’s comments came at a press conference yesterday. From the Wall Street Journal: “Hands-free calling ‘is not the big problem in America,’ Mr. LaHood said. ‘If other people want to work on hands-free, so be it.’” So be it, indeed, especially since LaHood oversees the NTSB and can govern the use of phones in cars.
