A National survey released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in spite of all the legal bans, texting by drivers keeps increasing, especially among younger motorists - ages 21 through 24.
The survey goes on to say that many drivers don't think it's dangerous when they do it - only when others do. Apparently the new laws have not discouraged motorists from texting or using their cellphones while driving. At any given moment, there is someone who is texting, emailing, surfing the Web or otherwise using a hand-held electronic device.
The survey goes on to report that in 2010 more than 3,000 deaths on the highways were caused by driver distraction, including eating while driving and thumbing emails.
