Researchers in Texas have created a “profile of the distracted driver.”
According to their research, the following people are more likely to use a cellphone while driving:
• People younger than 25
• Female drivers
• Lone drivers
While laws vary state to state, concerned citizens and institutions have taken steps to broaden awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Using any type of hand-help device is illegal in New York. Please, don’t text and drive!
