California’s ban on cell phone use while driving didn’t reduce car crashes: CU-Boulder Study | Uncover California

Source: uncovercalifornia.com

Interesting data here showing the so-called “ban” on cell phone use not reducing car crashes in California.  I think the problem is that the restrictions allow for drivers to dial numbers by hand and text to talk (at least for adults) and, therefore, the “exceptions swallow up the rule”.  As an attorney that handles auto accident claims in the Golden State, I can say that I continue to see traffic collisions caused by cell phone use on a regular basis since the laws were enacted by the California legislature.
