Driving Distraction: Cell Phones

Traffic...radio....friends...there are many distractions while driving but recently cell phones have become number one.

Motorists who use cellphones while driving are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves, according to a survey conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

  • Teens consider sending text messages their biggest distraction.
  • 37 percent of surveyed teens said text messaging was extremely or very distracting.
  • 20 percent are distracted by their emotional states.
  • 19 percent said that having friends in the car was distracting.
