Cell-phone Ban for Many Neb. Rigs Set for 2013

Posted on by

Starting in 2013, Nebraska is adopting a federal regulation that bans cell-phone use in any truck over 10,000 pounds. The rule applies to truck-driving professionals with 18 wheels, as would be expected. But it also includes pick-up trucks pulling horse trailers and lawn-care companies – anyone who meets the weight requirements. Many more folks in the state will benefit from decreased distracted driving, so plan ahead to change cell-phone habits!

Let me call you back when I get to Kansas! That’s what commercial truck drivers will have to start saying starting January 1st of next year.
