As state legislatures around the country rush to ban the use of cell phones in cars, I thought it would be a good time to pause and consider a few facts about cell phones and traffic safety over the past few years.
15 percent of Americans reported owning a Blackberry, iPhone or other smart phone in the same study.
Texting continues to explode in popularity, with the average American sending more than 310 texts per-month in 2008, according to the Neilson survey.
In 2002, at least 6 percent of drivers on the road at any given time were talking on the phone.
35 percent of all day-time cell phone minutes are used while behind the wheel, according to a report from the NTHSA.
The benefit to Americans of being able to use cell phones while driving is estimated to be at least $43 billion, according to a 2002 Harvard University study on the costs and benefits of cell phones in cars.
That same study found that the tremendous cost of banning cell phones in cars does not outweigh the benefits.
A study from the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution came to the same conclusion.


An exhaustive study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that outlawing the use of cell phones by drivers did decrease the number of people chatting while driving, but did not save any lives.
Or if you prefer your data in graphs, I made these three with data from the NHTSA, Neilson survey, The Pew Center and the U.S. These facts and data show us that despite all the sensationalistic claims like “talking on a cell phone is more dangerous than drunk driving,” the rapid proliferation of cell phones and text messaging in cars has not made our roads more dangerous. After all, if you ignore the results from fancy “eye-ball tracking” studies and driving simulators, which are not very applicable to the real world anyway, and just ask motorists what they find distracting, they will tell you something surprising. Why do you publish confusing graphs trying to suggest cause-effect relationship where there is not cause-effect relationship? Would you put either your child or your mother to cross a small street while a driver, chatting in his or her cell phone, is driving in the street?
Would not the decreasing tendency of fatalities (which is caused by many things but the cell phones) be better with a ban for cell phones while driving? In 2008, over 83 percent of Americans said they owned a cell phone, according to the Pew Center.


On this particular issue, however, the arguments that safety advocates are making don’t add up.
If you love America, you should avoid to make propaganda for companies which do not mind Americans’ pain.
The rest were trackbacks, which WordPress counts as comments–and yes, the trackbacks are displayed. If cell phones were uniquely distracting, then are roads today wouldn’t be safer than ever before.
