I talked with Kurt Schoenfeld yesterday. He travels the Midwest giving training seminars for firefighters on tools (like “Jaws of Life,” etc.) used in extracting people from vehicles in the aftermath of a bad wreck for Howell Rescue Systems. Coming on the heels of a report the day before by the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) that said texting, e-mailing or talking on a cell phone while driving is “too dangerous,” I asked Mr. Schoenfeld his opinion. He said even though he personally talks on a cell phone while driving for business purposes, he concurs with the NTSB finding. He said all it takes is a “split second” lapse for a major accident to happen. And he’s been at the scene of many such accidents. Our administration would concur with the NTSB (and Mr. Schoenfeld) and lobby for ban in regard to talking on cell phones, texting and e-mailing while driving. I mean, this is just simple common sense.
