Ban recommended on trucker cell use and texting

Some of the most experienced drivers on the road may soon be banned from using cell phones behind the wheel.

"I am always talking to the distributors finding out where I am going next," said truck driver Joseph Rodriguez.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending that states ban the use of cell phones by commercial truck drivers.

"I plan to fight it," said another truck driver.

The recommendation includes banning the use of hands free devices.

There is a good chance the cell phone ban will be adopted.
