Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood went on television last night to announce his support for a law banning mass transit operators from sending text messages while on the job:
Despite recent collisions involving text messaging in Boston , San Antonio , and the tragic train crash  in California last year, there has yet to be any national action taken to address this issue.
I for one have no idea how this isn’t currently illegal, but I’m glad the government may be finally looking into banning  mass transit workers from texting at work.
