More Adults Texting While Driving
By Dr. Brian McDonough, Medical Editor
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A recent study got a great deal of attention because it looked at road rage and found that over fifty percent of drivers experience the anger associated with frustration during driving.
There is no doubt this is important but the same study concerned me even more when I saw that a large percentage of adults actually text on the road to and from work. This is concerning because there is clearly an increased risk of accidents from the distraction and a growing number of people find themselves using the commute to get work done.
If you are one of these people stop putting yourselves and others at risk. The best way to avoid temptation is to leave your phones in the back seat where you can’t reach them.
