Phone use while driving isn’t down, but talking on the phone is

A new study has mixed news regarding cell phone use for drivers on New York roads and across the country. The good news from the study is that drivers are spending less time talking on their phones while driving. Unfortunately, drivers are reportedly spending more time doing other things on their phone.

According to the study, 57% of drivers were more likely to use their phones while driving to text, send e-mails, or surf the web opposed to making calls. The study, released by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, studied data from 2014 through 2018. The purpose of the study was to evaluate ways technology might lead to motor vehicle accidents. The increase in visual use of mobile devices is a concern, according to a spokesperson with the Highway Loss Data Institute. He believed that the type of use many drivers now undertake while driving is significantly riskier than otherwise.

Interestingly, the data did not reflect an increase in distracted driving in previous years. However, these results were consistent with other studies indicating drivers are using hand-held phones less while behind the wheel.

Regardless of technological advancement, distracted driving will remain a problem on public highways. Distracted drivers frequently lead to crashes, many of which result in injury. If a driver is injured in a vehicle accident caused by a distracted driver, they may have a viable claim for monetary damages. These potential damages could include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and vehicle repair costs. An attorney with experience in personal injury law may be able to help that driver obtain compensation for those damages. The lawyer might also be able to help by negotiating a settlement with the other side’s attorney or insurance company.
