Cell Phone Restrictions on NTSB's Most-wanted List of Safety Improvements

The National Transportation Safety Board issued its 2009 Federal Most Wanted List of safety improvements, and new additions to the list include: improve emergency medical services (EMS) flight operations, restrict the use of cell phones by motorcoach drivers, and require electronic on-board recorders by all motor carriers.

Among the issues removed from the list were positive train control, which has been on the list since its inception in 1990, fatigue in the railroad industry and aircraft fuel tank flammability.

"Our Most Wanted List, which was created in 1990, was designed to raise the public's awareness and support for transportation safety issues," said NTSB Chairman Mark V. Rosenker. "The safety issues on this list are critical to improving transportation safety. When acted upon, these recommendations will reduce accidents and save lives."
