New NTSB Chair Won’t Be Texting While Driving

New NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman’s first act after being ceremonially sworn into her job (she started the job officially on July 28) was to sign a new policy banning calling or texting while driving for all NTSB employees (including herself).

She said: “Consider it a sterile cockpit rule… .”

Is your auto a “sterile cockpit” or do you allow distractions while driving?

How much distraction do you allow?

Did you take our poll about “illegal” distractions?
