Apparently the officials within President Barack Obama’s administration seem to agree with Utah’s No Text Messaging While Driving Law. Officials have called a summit next month where experts will give statistics and advice on the effects of texting while driving. Ray LaHood, Transportation Secretary, held a press conference Tuesday where he spoke of recent incidents of texting that lead to fatalities. LaHood recounted a recent California train crash that killed 25 people, including the operator who was texting at the time of the crash. LaHood plans on making an announcement after the summit.
