WHITE HOUSE : No Texting & Driving
red bar



The Obama administration recently issued an executive order banning federal employees
from text messaging while driving on government business.

Released at the end of a two-day distracted driving summit in Washington, the order applies to federal employees operating government-owned vehicles or driving privately owned vehicles on government business. It also bans the use of government-supplied electronic equipment while driving. Federal contractors are encouraged to implement similar restrictions.

Agencies will be required to outline specific steps to implement the ban, including disciplinary actions for employees caught texting while driving. The order directs agencies to evaluate existing driving safety education and awareness programs and consider expanding these efforts in coordination with a stricter texting policy.

The General Services Administration and the Office of Personnel Management will assist the Transportation Department in guiding the order's implementation and enforcement in agencies.

Texting while driving is illegal in 18 states and the District of Columbia.

Hire a Hero is a not for profit charity. Their only goal is to eliminate what they call the Military Service Penalty. They are starting a very aggressive program called Wounded Warriors to Work and PTSD Peers. All their programs leverage social networking to drive social interaction and empower the people looking to reintegrate into civilian society. For example, they have a very cool Military Fantasy Football League being launched on Veteran's Day. Units can play units etc. - all is done in the attempt to get people connected so they can help themselves by helping
others. Step one is getting people communicating. The more people a person talks to during transition is directly proportional to how successfully they reintegrate. For more information, visit Hire A Hero's Web site by clicking here, www.hireahero.org.
