Techstination feature for Monday, February 11, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      The National Transportation Safety Board this month issued its 2019-2020 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety improvements.  And number one on the list for the next two years…is the battle against distracted driving.   The use of mobile devices by drivers is an epidemic that is claiming lives by the thousands…and the NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt says…

“We love these things.   We love our personal electronic devices.   We can’t do without them.   They’re commonplace.  And the distraction from these devices is commonplace.  It must be addressed.”

Also on the NTSB’s list  of needed safety improvements… speeding… and a push to require car makers to make the latest safety technology standard equipment.
