Drive Now, Talk Later - Interruption Management

Data from www.distraction.gov indicates that in 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 416,000 injured in 2010.

From Distracted Driver Handbook, Office of Research and Statistics (July 2009) comes the very sad truth: half of people in the U.S. admit to cell phone use while driving:

    * One in every seven admit to sending cell phone text messages while driving

    * 46% of 16 and 17 year old drivers admit to texting while driving

    * 48% of 18 to 24 year old drivers admit to texting while driving

    * 67% of drivers 25 to 34 admit to texting or talking on the phone while driving

    * 65% of drivers with a higher education text or talk on the phone while driving  

What are we coming to as a species?
