As you are no doubt aware, the National Transporation Safety Board announced recently that it is recommending a nation-wide ban on the non-emergency use of Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) while operating a motor vehicle.

  • The annoucement can be found on Westlaw at 2011 WL 6165016
  •  The announcement notes that he NTSB’s full report will be available on the website in several weeks. You can also access accident investigation reports here  though the Gray Summit accident referenced in the announcement does not appear to be hyperlinked.
  • The Virginia Tech report cited in the document appears here.
  • Other Westlaw content includes National Transportation Safety Board Documents (NTSBDOCS).  The NTSB decisions database (FTRAN-NTSB) inlcudes aviation and marine cases only.
