In another effort to clamp down on distracted drivers, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has proposed a rule to ban commercial truck and bus drivers from texting while driving. The proposal, announced Wednesday, March 31, seeks to make permanent a temporary ban - announced in January by DOT Secretary Ray LaHood - that applies to bus and commercial truck drivers of vehicles that weigh more than 10,000 pounds.
