LaHood’s Distracted Driving Summit: Follow It Live

If you've got some free time at your desk over the next couple of days, drop in on the U.S. DOT distracted driving summit.

There
are plenty of platitudes flying around about the obvious need for
"awareness" of how dangerous it is to operate a multi-thousand pound
projectile while reading or typing, but there are lots of of
interesting tidbits too. This morning, for example, a AAA rep declined
to say whether his group supports a national texting ban, while a Utah transit official suggested that those who want to text while commuting should consider public transportation.

You can follow the event through tomorrow afternoon via webcast or Secretary Ray LaHood's live-blog feed.
