Absolute Flaming Idiots

Yahoo News:US auto safety group wants to curb gadget use by truckers

Advocates even wants the FMCSA, the DOT agency that oversees commercial trucking, to study whether using Citizens' Band (CB) radios -- which provide short-distance radio communications -- or dashboard-mounted navigational devices should be banned.

CB radios are a lifesaver on the road, both for truckers and other users. You can find out about accidents and hazards ahead and have time to prepare. Advocates are being absolute flaming idiots. Maybe if they could take a break from their railroad funded Jihad against the trucking industry they could, I don't know, do something about AUTO safety.
