“The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there were some 424,000 people injured in accidents involving distracted drivers during 2013. Distracted driving has become a serious public health issue, in no small part due to the popularity of smart phones and other personal Internet-enabled devices in recent years. Michigan joined fourteen states and Washington D.C. when it made texting or emailing when driving a car illegal. Do you think this type of legislation reduces the risk of accidents attributable to distracted driving? Why or why not?”
