Does Use of Cell Phones While Driving Cause Crashes?
Virginia Tech just released a report (see coverage) providing evidence that cell phones distract drivers and are the cause of accidents, near accidents, etc.
Our new report "Mobile Phone Headsets: Consumers Seek Comfort and Safety" discusses the extent to which consumers use headsets, what features they seek, and why they use headsets. Bottom line, only 13 percent of consumers are regular users. Safety while driving is the primary reason for doing so.
