Federal agencies have been requested to discourage their employees from using hand-held cell phones when they’re driving government-owned or -leased vehicles. The U.S. General Services Administration, which provides facilities and management services to other federal agencies, has stopped short of banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. But a notice that appeared in the Federal Register on March 1 has recommended that agencies discourage their employees from driving while talking.
