"So-called 'distracted driving' has become a big public health issue in recent years. The majority of U.S. states now ban texting behind the wheel, while a handful prohibit drivers from using handheld cellphones at all .... But studies have reached different conclusions about how much of an added crash risk there is with cellphone use. In the new report, Richard A. Young of Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit finds that two influential studies on the subject might have overestimated the risk." (12/13/11)
