With all the attention on reducing cell-phone use while driving, I hadn’t realized that cell phone use accounts for less than 10% of Distracted-Affected Crashes. National data suggests that over 90% of distracted driving crashes are not from cell phone use!
Of course, this isn’t an argument for using cell phones while you drive, but it is a healthy reminder to pay attention to driving. There are plenty of other ways to be distracted: eating, music controls, a/c, . . .
What’s your distraction? Mine is flipping through radio stations.
(If you do need an extra push to park your cell-phone while driving, Oregon recorded about 64,000 tickets for cell-phone use from 2015-2019!)
