Canadian Automobile Association seeks iPod ban

In an effort to cut down on traffic accidents caused by driver distraction, the Canadian Automobile Association is pressing provinces in Canada to ban the use of MP3 players, cell phones and other devices while driving. “Restricting the use of electronic devices, such as cell phones, MP3 players and wireless hand-held devices, [allows drivers to] truly focus on the driving task,” said CAA President David Flewelling. “It is also our hope that a preventative measure like this one will create a generation of motorists who recognize the severe implications of driver distractions. Driver distraction is the greatest unreported traffic safety issue in Canada.”
