NoCell is a relatively new company that is trying to improve driver safety by doing something fairly radical: cutting off a driver’s ability to use a lot of cellphone functions while on the road. Corey Woinarowicz of NoCell sits down with host John Kingston to discuss this simple technology and why it’s controversial.

Also on the podcast, Kingston reviews this week’s latest inventory report and what that means for the tight squeeze in diesel on the East Coast.
