National Transportation Safety Board Recommendations to Improve Travel Safety

US safety officials are calling for a crackdown on drunk and distracted drivers, along with other transportation issues.

The national transportation safety board laid out a wishlist today of issues it wants improved on the roads and in the sky.

Federal officials say they want a wider use of technology to prevent crashes, and tougher rules for pilots of air tours and medical flights.

That’s in addition to being tougher on drunk and distracted drivers.

The safety board planned to unveil its wishlist last month, but it was delayed because of the partial government shutdown.
