Distracted driver study reveals interesting findings

The evolution of the cellphone, like many modern advances in technology, has had a large impact on society with both positive and negative consequences. One of the negative consequences of the cellphone is that it can create a distraction for drivers, particularly teenage drivers. A recent distracted driver study pertaining to New York, as well as the rest of the country, shows that distracted driving, largely from cellphone usage, accounts for 58 percent of accidents in which teenage drivers are involved.

Driving and texting - dangerous combination

Along with the convenience and flexibility afforded by mobile communication devices comes the increased probability of a driver being distracted from the road, possibly causing an accident that results in injury to a bystanding party. Statistics provided by the Federal Communications Commission highlight how driving has changed in recent years due to cellphone use. New York readers may be interested in the numbers provided by the FCC in order to protect themselves as they travel on the roads.

New York cracks down on distracted drivers

New York State is getting tough on drivers that use cell phones or text while operating their vehicles. During a summer crackdown, officers issued more than 21,500 tickets this year, as opposed to about 5,000 citations last year. Now drivers in New York who talk on cell phones or text are subject to fines of $150.
