“Distracted driving is a major initiative that we are undertaking across the country, and one that we believe will make our roads significantly safer,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Decades of experience with drunk driving has taught us it takes a consistent combination of education, effective enforcement, a committed judiciary and collective efforts by local, state and national advocates to put a dent in the problem.
