States with Texting While Driving Bans Have Fewer ER Visits After Car Crashes: Study

New research from the American Journal of Public Health suggests a correlation between states with texting while driving bans and emergency room (ER) visits after car crashes. Data gathered from 16 U.S. states between 2007 and 2014 looks at the states with a ban on texting while driving and reported emergency room visits due to distracted driving-related motor vehicle crashes. On average, states that have banned texting while driving reported a 4 percent reduction in motor vehicle crash-related ER visits.
