NTSB calls for nationwide ban
on PEDs while driving Dec 13, 2011 Following todays Board meeting on the 2010 multi-vehicle highway accident in Gray Summit, Missouri, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) called for the first- ever nationwide ban on driver use of portable electronic devices (PEDs) while operating a motor vehicle. The safety recommendation specifically calls for the 50 states and the District of Columbia to ban the nonemergency use of portable electronic devices (other than those designed to support the driving task) for all drivers. The safety recommendation also urges use of the NHTSA model of high-visibility enforcement to support these bans and implementation of targeted communication campaigns to inform motorists of the new law and heightened enforcement. "According to NHTSA, more than 3,000 people lost their lives last year in distraction- related accidents", said Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman. "It is time for all of us to stand up for safety by turning off electronic devices when driving." "No call, no text, no update, is worth a human life."Last week the NTSB saiddrivers should never usephones, texting, or apps.

solution 2 serious game -
driving simulation (probably won’t work except in drivers education... why would you play it otherwise?) ...and drivers education may not actually improve safety: bit.ly/s2FJ0p
solution 4Reward people who don’t
use theirphones while driving(lottery model: every mile use an accelerometer appyou travel while not using with diﬀerent success tiers for diﬀerent activities, plus multipliers your phone earns you a and bonuses lotto entry)
solution 5 if you’re on
the move, your callers/texters receive a prompt asking them if theyaccelerometer-based really need to interrupt you voicemail delivery nowtiming & SMS timing reward both sender and recipient
solution 6augmented reality game based
on GPS & phonedocks with social prizing model Special car dock blocks calls, signals that you’re in the car. plugging it in causes the game to start as an overlay with your GPS (included). Includes: missions, power- ups, social sharing
