Ninety percent of cell phone drivers concerned about safety
According to the latest study from the Consumer Electronics Association, most drivers who use cell phones consider safety their number one priority when in an automobile. It's just too bad that this sentence is modified by "most" instead of "a.."
Twenty-two percent of drivers with cell phones never use their cell phones while driving and other cell phone users will only use the following devices with their cell phones while driving: speakerphone built into cell phone (29%); wireless Bluetooth headset (22%); wired earphone or headset (10%); and wireless Bluetooth speakerphone accessory for your automobile (5%)
Distracted driving is a major issue our nation faces, and while we can all be distracted at times, in-car technology has made huge leaps and bounds to be safer and more-user friendly- incorporating voice activation and numerous other technologies to give us safety and comfort, while reducing the amount of distractions. Not only do Americans spend time nearly every day in the automobile, the typical individual spends about 16.5 hours a week in his vehicle. So safe driving is of major importance to all Americans.
