Several driving studies conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute have shed light on distracted driving, particularly cell phone use and texting while driving. The evidence is clear: distracted driving and texting while driving significantly increase the risk of getting in a serious accident, with the potential for catastrophic injuries.

The risks found in the study were different for auto drivers versus truck drivers. In this study, talking on the phone slightly increased the risk of an accident but dialing a phone increased the risk three to five times. Reaching for a ringing cell phone or another object in a vehicle increased the chances of an accident up to seven times. Text messaging was, by far, the worst activity. For truck drivers, she was texting while driving increases the risk of accidents more than 23 times that of a non-distracted driver. This can easily mean the difference between life or death on busy city streets or highways.
