Wyoming House

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Several Wyoming lawmakers say the state is unlikely to follow a federal safety board’s recommendation to ban motorists from using cell phones while driving.

The National Transportation Safety Board last week called on all states to prohibit drivers from using cell phones except in emergencies. The board says more than 3,000 drivers died last year in accidents caused by being distracted.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/snMLY9 ) that Wyoming is one of 41 states that allows drivers to talk on cell phones. Wyoming has banned sending text messages while driving.

Several Cheyenne-area lawmakers told the newspaper that they don’t expect the Wyoming Legislature will change state law to follow the federal recommendations.
