Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has his nanny dress on again. From an interview with D.C.'s WTOP:

Drivers who talk or text on their cellphones may hear from the Secretary of Transportation in a very personal way.

"I drive around on the weekends in Washington," Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood tells WTOP about his informal road patrols.

When he sees what he describes as "my biggest source of irritation" -- somebody on a cellphone, LaHood takes action.

"What I've been doing is kind of honking at somebody if I see him on a cellphone."

LaHood says it's his way of "taking personal responsibility" to reduce driver distractions.

So, Secretary of Bossypants LaHood spends his weekends driving around honking and further distracting D.C. drivers?

Fun times.
