National safety officials say distracted driving is killing thousands of people every year. The National Transportation Safety Board wants to ban all cell phone use and texting while driving.  Steve Esselstyn with the Bend Police Department says the current state laws on the books, aren't changing behavior. “Your brain is not processing things in parallel, not driving and not texting with proficiency.   You’re distracted and it takes a while to recover and get your eyes back on the road. In some ways it is more dangerous than driving while intoxicated though both can be deadly.” The NTSB's action is a recommendation only, but this Board has been influential in bringing about other changes to improve traffic safety.
