UNC researchers: Ban cell phones while driving

Lawmakers banned texting while driving last year. Now, researchers say it might be time to ban all cell phone use behind the wheel.

Arthur Goodwin, a senior research associate for the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center, recently briefed state lawmakers about the dangers of talking while driving.

“The research shows that if you’re talking on a cell phone while driving, you’re four times more likely to be in a crash,” Goodwin said Monday, adding that is the same risk of being in a crash if a person were drunk.
