What Safety Experts Are Doing About It
In response to the serious crash, both experts and civilians are calling for a full ban on cell phone use by truckers. If lawmakers choose to tackle this sensitive subject, truck drivers may soon be banned from texting, dialing, or talking on the phone while driving. The ban would apply to both handheld and hands-free devices. While some believe that a law such as this would take away the rights of drivers, others think it will stop trucking crashes before they happen.
