The use of cell phones while driving is ubiquitous, particularly in countries where the practice is legal. However, surveys indicate that most drivers favor legislation to limit the use of mobile devices during the operation of a vehicle. A study was conducted to understand this inconsistency between what drivers do and what they advocate for others. Participants completed a survey about their driving attitudes, abilities, and behaviors. Following previous research, drivers reported using cell…

Risk Perceptions of Mobile Phone Use While Driving

Given the growing number of in-car technological innovations, it is suggested that regulators act strategically, rather than finding themselves developing a series of "hazard-specific" regulations, which may ultimately lack coherence.

Dialling and driving: factors influencing intentions to use a mobile phone while driving.

A meta-analysis of the effects of cell phones on driver performance.

Examining the Impact of Cell Phone Conversations on Driving Using Meta-Analytic Techniques

There are significant costs to driver reactions to external hazards or events associated with cell phone use, hands-free cell phones do not eliminate or substantially reduce these costs, and different research methodologies or performance measures may underestimate these costs.

Association between cellular-telephone calls and motor vehicle collisions.

The use of cellular telephones in motor vehicles is associated with a quadrupling of the risk of a collision during the brief time interval involving a call, suggesting that having a cellular telephone may have had advantages in the aftermath of an event.

Driven to Distraction: Dual-Task Studies of Simulated Driving and Conversing on a Cellular Telephone

It is suggested that cellular-phone use disrupts performance by diverting attention to an engaging cognitive context other than the one immediately associated with driving.
