GHSA Study Illuminates Distracted Driving Laws Across The Country

A new report references a Governors Highway Safety Association study that took a look at the various laws states have enacted in regards to distracted driving.  With nine out of citizens across the country having a cellphone and half of the country in possession of a Smartphone, the issue will only continue to grow in importance.  The study’s lead author said that most states are at the very least making some strides in fighting this epidemic,  especially among the country’s youngest drivers.  Many states that have yet to ban texting or talking on a phone are at least enacting various educational efforts and mandates affecting employees.  37 states don’t allow teen drivers to use phones, but only 11 states have made the leap to ban all handheld cellphone usage among all drivers.
