Dialing, texting while driving dangerous, especially for teens

Drivers in Wisconsin and around the U.S. have new data to consider after a new study revealed that, especially for teen drivers, dialing or reaching for a cell phone is far more dangerous than simply speaking on the phone. The study, conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, was a real-world study that looked at aspects of in-car cell phone use other than voice conversation.

Fatal auto accidents linked to cellphones may be underreported

The number of fatal car crashes caused by distracted driving in Wisconsin and across the country may be much higher than originally thought. The National Safety Council, an advocacy group, recently released its findings from a study of state and federal data on auto accidents from 2009 to 2011. The group found that out of 180 car crashes in which there was strong evidence that the driver had been using a cell phone, less than half were recorded in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's database as having involved a cellphone.
