Talk or Drive. Don't Do Both

According to Associated Press:
Drivers using cellular phones are four times as likely to get into a crash that can cause injuries serious enough to send them to the hospital.

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

  • Research found an overall fourfold increase in injury crashes when drivers were using cell phones.

  • The study looked at cell phone records to examine phone usage within minutes before an actual crash.

  • Using a hands-free device instead of a hand-held phone while behind the wheel does not improve safety.
