The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will showcase technologies that help curb distracted driving at a symposium today, Friday, April 19. The agency’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau is putting on the event as part of its ongoing campaign against distracted behind-the-wheel behavior.
