Safe Use of Technology
TCA supports the safe use of technologies and encourages drivers
and/or motor carriers to consider a range of policies and safeguards
intended to reduce, minimize, and/or eliminate driver distractions that
may be caused by the increased use of electronic technologies (e.g.
global positioning systems, cellular phones, etc.) during the operation
of all types of motor vehicles. TCA strongly encourages and recommends
that manufacturers of these devices, vehicle manufacturers, policy
makers, motor carriers, and organizations representing motor carriers
and the motoring public promote and adopt awareness, training, and
safety policies on the use of such technologies - unless required by
current laws and regulations - during the operation of a motor vehicle
on our nation’s highways.
