The folks expressing a problem with the lack of hard data regarding actual incidents where cell phone use was the culprit have a point simply because until very recently, there was no attempt made by law enforcement to ascertain such use around the time of the accident. This is changing, primarily because the insurance companies are getting into the action by raising premiums or dropping coverage altogether where such use resulted in an accident: http://www.autoinsurancetips.com/ce...ur-mobile-phone-impact-your-insurance-premium These insurance guys, unlike some folks, appreciate the value of 'cohorts' and statistics such as "if you're an unmarried superman with the reflexes of a panther, the balls of king kong, the eyesight an eagle" and then trash it by not looking at the road because you're texting or by induced cognitive impairment by carrying on a conversation over the phone (look it up, use google, you'll find it, oh, wait, those are studies and studies are bad! are you guys into astrology and creationism too?), then you'll discover, suddenly, that your premiums are much higher because, in that age and cell usage cohort you're a real and serious risk to their bottom line. End of story, and you don't have to believe me, call your insurance agent. I checked with mine. Good luck, they'll check your phone records too. Cha-ching.
