Mobile Usage While Driving - Increasing In The US

My latest pet peeve, seeing people driving while on the phone or using their phone.

The Distracted American Driver - NYTimes.com:

"Despite increasing media attention and laws forbidding the practice, more Americans than ever are using their cellphones to talk and send text messages while driving, a new study shows.

According to the research, nearly 70 percent of Americans ages 18 to 64 said they had chatted on their phones while driving in the past 30 days, and about 30 percent said they had sent text messages while behind the wheel. Drivers in seven European countries were also included in the study, and the numbers showed that the practice appears to be far more common in the United States than overseas."
