Text Messaging While Driving by Government Contractors, Subcontractors, Award Recipients, and Subrecipients

If you are a Federal Government contractor, subcontractor, award recipient, or subrecipient, you are encouraged to enforce policies that ban text messaging while driving company-owned, rented, or Government-owned vehicles; while driving privately owned vehicles when on official Government business; or when performing any work for or on behalf of the Government.
