The National Transportation Safety Board's recommendation to prohibit all drivers' use of cellphones has the support of some public-sector risk managers. "Using cellphones while driving is a hazard for both the passengers in the car you are in and the cars around you," says Lori Seidenberg, a director of the Risk and Insurance Management Society, adding that hands-free devices still pose a risk. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has said he backs hands-free cellphone use by drivers.
