(United Nations - Collin Campbell, Transportation Nation) - Distracted driving is a top priority at the U.S. Department of Transportation. Which isn't saying much some days. Secretary Ray LaHood talks about it a lot. The department is funding researching into how cops can write more tickets for talking and texting while driving. LaHood often appears in public with people from Focus Driven, a non-profit that he helped create to raise awareness.
But the secretary's push faces a world moving the other way. Cell phones have maps and GPS, automakers do things like put Twitter in the dashboard, and minivans are becoming wireless hot spots. According to LaHood, the world now has 4.6 billion cell phone subscriptions and 600 million cars. The math adds up to drivers who must resist many distractions. And, even in the U.S., most cities, states and cops have yet to pass or enforce laws and regulations to back new behavior.
