UM: Texting Ban

The Detroit Free Press reports on the state’s ban on texting while driving, which takes effect July 1. The article quotes Jim Sayer, associate research scientist at the UM Transportation Research Institute: “Our families, our employers … have an expectation that if you have a cell phone then you are reachable at any point in time. To address the whole overarching issue of texting … while they’re driving, that culture needs to change.” [Source]
