The following editorial appeared in the Chicago Tribune:
The National Transportation Safety Board wants all 50 states to ban cellphone use by drivers. No texting, no tweeting, no talking — not even on a hands-free phone.
It’s a standard that goes beyond anything on the books in any state.
The board has no authority to impose it. The data on accidents involving cellphones is inconclusive, the government is not our nanny, and eating a chili dog while driving is dangerous, too.
A nationwide ban will not happen.
