How rescue workers respond to an emergency at an offshore drilling facility in the Gulf of Mexico can make all the difference. That’s why the U.S. Department of State and other government officials recently held a seminar focused on preparedness and response procedures related to the energy sector in the Gulf of Mexico region. Government representatives from the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States met to discuss a wide range of topics, including preventive regulatory frameworks, safety standards for floating production units and best practices in oil spill containment.

A federal agency responsible for investigating auto accidents recently recommended banning the use of cell phones while driving, including hands-free cell phone devices. The National Transportation Safety Board made this dramatic recommendation published on the front page of the New York Times based on safety concerns. “It’s about not being engaged at the task at hand,” NTSB chairman Deborah Herman said, referring to talking on a cell phone while driving, even while using a hands-free device. “Lives are being lost in the blink of an eye.”
Distracted driving injures and kills thousands of people every year nationwide and in Michigan. Such accidents happen fast, as Deborah Herman noted.

In Michigan, it’s illegal to text while driving. Nationwide, 35 states ban texting while driving. In addition, nine states prohibit the use of hand-held phones. No states completely restrict drivers from using cell phones while driving. That should change, Herman said. She compared using a cell phone while driving to drunk driving. “It’s going to be very unpopular with some people,” Herman said, referring to the idea of completely banning drivers from using cell phones. “We’re not here to win a popularity contest. We’re here to do the right thing.”

A tragic multi-car accident in Florida resulting in the deaths of 10 people and injuries to nearly two dozen people has been attributed in part to poor visibility. But questions linger after the fatal incident: A few hours before the deadly highway crash in Gainesville, authorities closed – and then reopened – the highway due to a three-vehicle crash.
In a chilling 911 call, someone involved in the multi-vehicle accident described extremely poor visibility. The caller told a 911 operator she could not see much more than a couple of feet in front of her.
