More people than ever are turning their cars into personal phone booths...with a million and a half drivers gabbing on cell phones, at any given time.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a report today...recommending that motorists use cell phones, while driving, ONLY during an emergency.
The study shows about ten percent of the people on the road, during the day, are using cell phones.
Previous studies have pointed out...drivers using cell phones are four times as likely to get into a crash, that could cause injury or death.
Because they make the classic mistakes.
Eight states, including Nevada, don't restrict cell phone use, and don't require hands-free devices while driving.
