Transportation Bill Gets Thumbs-Up from National Safety Council

Posted on July 6, 2012

The National Safety Council thinks that the country is moving in the right direction in regards to teaching teenagers about the dangers of driving while using a cellphone. Recently, Congress passed a Surface Transportation Reauthorization Bill which authorized a $13 million grant program that could be utilized by states to create programs which would slowly immerse youth in driving, one step at a time.  There is also a  $23 million grant program in place for states that teach teens the dangers of talking or texting on cellphones while driving.
