Safety conversation on guidelines for in-vehicle communications systems draws crowd

US DOT – Last month, we issued proposed guidelines for automakers to limit the distraction risk for in-vehicle electronic systems. But before those guidelines take their final form, we’ve invited the public to weigh in and let us know what they think. This process will ensure that we hear a number of different perspectives, and today the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration held the first of three public hearings on this important safety issue.
