Commercial drivers, including those who operate semitrucks and buses, need to have their attention on the roadway. Failing to do so can result in accidents that can range from minor fender benders to fatal crashes. One thing that can distract truckers and other commercial drivers is texting. For this reason, the federal government has stepped in to set up regulations regarding texting, smartphone use, and cellphone use for these drivers.
Anybody who gets behind the wheel of a vehicle should understand the importance of remaining focused on the task at hand at all times.
