U.S. Government Taking Steps to Keep Roads Safer

In an effort to stop the epidemic of distracted driving, U.S. Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood announced a final rule that specifically prohibits interstate truckers and bus drivers from using hand-held cell phones while operating their vehicles. The rule announces strict penalties for those in violation. A fine of up to $2,750.00 for each offense and a disqualification from operating commercial motor vehicles if multiple offenses is involved.

Any commercial truck and bus companies that allow their drivers to use hand-held cell phones while driving could face up to an $11,000.00 fine. Secretary LaHood stated, "When drivers of large trucks, buses and hazardous materials take their eyes off the road for even a few seconds, the outcome can be deadly, I hope that this rule will save lives by helping commercial drivers stay laser-focused on safety at all times while behind the wheel."

At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., we applaud Mr. LaHood's focus on distracted driving and the devastating effects that it can cause.
