Sample:

“Text messaging, browsing and dialing resulted in the longest duration of drivers taking their eyes off the road. Text messaging increased the risk of a crash or near-crash by two times and resulted in drivers taking their eyes off the road for an average of 23 seconds total. Activities performed when completing a phone call (reaching for a phone, looking up a contact and dialing the number) increased crash risk by three times. There is no direct increased crash risk from the specific act of talking on a cell phone. However, visual-manual tasks (locating the phone, looking at the phone and touching the phone) are always involved when using a hand-held cell phone. This makes the overall use of a hand-held cell phone riskier when driving. Even portable hands-free and vehicle-integrated hands-free cell phone use involved visual-manual tasks at least half of the time, which is associated with a greater crash risk.”

“■ Ten percent of fatal crashes in 2011 were reported as distraction-affected crashes.

■ Seventeen percent of injury crashes in 2011 were reported as distraction-affected crashes.

■ In 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving distracted drivers and an estimated additional 387,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.

■ Of those people killed in distraction-affected crashes, 385 died in crashes in which at least one of the drivers was using a cell phone (12% of fatalities in distraction-affected crashes) at the time of the crash. Use of a cell phone includes talking/listening to a cell phone, dialing/texting a cell phone, or other cell-phone-related activities. “

Sample:

“More New Jersey drivers than ever admit to sending text messages from behind the wheel, with 25% now saying that they have done so in the past few years, a 20% increase from last year, when 21% said that they had done so. In 2008, only 15% of drivers said that they had sent a text while driving. According to a recent study by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind Poll, co-sponsored by the state’s Division of Highway Traffic Safety, despite this increase in texting and high levels of speeding among young people and commuters, New Jersey drivers say that their neighbors in New York are the worst behind a wheel. In previous years, increases in texting were sparked by drivers under the age of 30, but this is no longer the case. While the youngest drivers are more likely to text than any other age group (56% of drivers under age 30 say that they’ve sent a text while behind the wheel), the increase in this year’s study can be attributed to drivers aged 30 to 60. In this year’s study, 37% of drivers 30 to 44 years of age say they’ve sent a text while driving, up 9 points from last year, and 17% of drivers 45 to 60 years of age say they’ve done so, up from 12% in 2009. Among drivers between 30 and 60 years of age, the number who admit to texting while driving has increased dramatically since 2008. “

Sample:

“If you use a cell phone, chances are you’re aware of “text messaging”—brief messages limited to 160 characters that can be sent or received on all modern mobile phones. Texting, also known as SMS (for short message service), is on the rise, up from 9.8 billion messages a month in December ’05 to 110.4 billion in December ’08. Undoubtedly, more than a few of those messages are being sent by people driving cars. Is texting while driving a dangerous idea? We decided to conduct a test.”
