Even Hands-Free Cellphone Use While Driving Has Increased Risk For Car Accidents

Statistics and studies show us time and time again that distracted driving, like driving while texting or talking on the phone increases our risk for getting into a car accident. A 2009 study by the New York Times shows that about 11% of drivers are talking on their cell phones while driving, and a Harvard study indicates that cell phone distractions account for about 20% of all injuries and 16% of all road fatalities. Many people feel these statistics are extremely underestimated because many drivers will not admit to texting or talking on the phone after an accident.
