My law partner, Rick Shapiro, posted an article at our Va. Beach Injuryboard blog covering the Federal Railroad Administriation's emergency ban on cell phone use by railroad locomotive crews, which takes effect on October 27, 2008. He has interesting comments about railroad's efforts to reduce crew size and how this affects some of the new rules.
