The Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has decided that he should ask automakers to redesign the electronic devices that allow drivers to access social networks to be disabled while cars are moving. He would like to see that the devices are incapable of being used while the car is in motion, therefore, the car must be in park during the use of these devices. The devices include devices that allow the driver to; manually text, browse the internet, enter addresses for navigation systems, and dialing a ten digit phone numbers.
This is in additional to the Government’s guidelines that were set forth in the year 2010. It goes along side the other rules that are concerning distracted driving. Distracted driving has already claimed three thousand, ninety two victims. It is a cause for concern and they plan to take care of the losses of lives due to carelessness even though the automakers have been doing their part since 2002.
