There isn't a nationwide ban on texting for regular drivers (yet), but starting today bus drivers and commercial truckers will have to put down the mobile phone and concentrate on the road.
I think I speak for just about everyone that isn't a bus or truck driver when I say... it's about damn time. I mean, you would be a dammed fool to text while driving any sort of vehicle, but when a big rig goes down there is a much greater potential for disaster (not to mention a bus full of kids). The new ban carries fines of up to $US2750. [Reuters via Crunchgear Image via cuteegroup]
