Phones Are Only the Tip of the Iceberg

A study by the Highway Loss Data Institute says that cell phone talking and texting while driving is not the primary culprit in car crashes. The fault lies with distractions in general.

They mention that even though cell phone usage has skyrocketed in the last few years, the number of crashes has not. Phones are only one in a host of distractions that can include eating, turning around to talk or adjusting air vents.

Additional distractions keep showing up in new vehicles as well, with things like iPod plugins, Google search capabilities and other gadgets.

The study says that simply banning cell phones will not do much to prevent crashes.
