Executive Order Bans Texting While Driving

According to ABC News, President Obama has signed an executive order banning government employees from "text-messaging while on government business, driving government vehicles or using government equipment."  The order also encourages contractors to adopt such policies.

While this executive order is addressing safety concerns and the distractions that are associated with messaging, I am sure that we will see the right-wing noise machine claim Obama is trying to control our cellphones and prevent people from leaking information...

My prediction is that Glenn Beck will rant about liberty, freedom, and bold questions regarding this matter and encourage his fellow Fox commentators to pick up on the issue.

  1. Instead of banning texting while driving we can use mobile application to handle such problems.
