In a post below, I relate Dr. Amy Ship's recommendation to her patients and to her colleagues that they focus seriously on the dangers of cell phone use while driving. Now comes this study by the Pew Research Center that blows apart the myth that it is mainly teenagers who are texting while driving:
One in four (27%) American adults say they have texted while driving, the same proportion as the number of driving age teens (26%) who say they have texted while driving.
In addition, 49% of adults say they have been passengers in a car when the driver was sending or reading text messages on their cell phone.
OMG. What a silly and terrible way to hurt someone or be hurt.
