Texting behind the wheel is more dangerous than being drunk

23 September 2008

Texting behind the wheel impairs driving skills more than being drunk or high, according to new research carried out by TRL for The Royal Automobile Club Foundation. Despite the danger, 48% of UK drivers aged 18 - 24* admit to using short message services (SMS) whilst driving - a group already at much higher risk of being involved in a crash.
