This Sunday, about 400 feet from Washington, DC’s busy Union Station, an explosion erupted underground. It was a “loud noise” accompanied by erupting flames, according to Metro. A worker was killed. Two others were injured. Yet, in a stunning decision, the National Transportation Safety Board has decided not to investigate the incident.
"No call, no text, no update, is worth a human life," National Transportation Safety Board Chairwoman Deborah Hersman said in a statement explaining her panel's recommendation in favor of a complete ban on the use of personal electronic devices in cars.
A few months ago, tooling along in my brand new Honda (aka "cute car"), I came to a stop at a red light. On my right, a police cruiser with lights flashing was investigating a fender bender. A total of three cars, the two that were in the accident plus the police car, were off on the shoulder. I was waiting for the light to change when -- bam -- someone crashed into me from behind.
