Orlando, FL (AP) - Walt Disney workers are now prohibited from
texting while driving on the job.

The new ban which recently took effect covers all Disney
workers, including the 60,000 employees at Orlando-based Walt
Disney World.

Even before the companywide policy was issued, Disney World
employees whose jobs involve transporting guests, such as bus
drivers and monorail pilots, were already prohibited from texting.

The ban prohibits employees from making or receiving phone calls
while driving on the job unless they use a single ear piece. It
applies to workers who are either driving company vehicles or using
their own vehicles while on the job.

The policy does not apply to employees during their drives to or
from work.

    I wish the rest of the U.S. ran things as smooth as Mickey Mouse runs Disney.
