Autobytel survey finds drivers know all about cell phone dangers...but talk anyway.

You're driving along and you see him: Good old Mr. Chatter Box, one hand on the wheel and one on a phone stuck between shoulder and ear. He brakes for a phantom dog. Then he changes speed like he's driving a bumper car, and bounces around the lane like a pinball. He is a danger, a modern-day nuisance who should be locked up. Thank goodness the rest of us know how to talk properly when we drive. Right. When it comes to driving and talking, we hate it when people do it around us but think nothing of picking up the phone when we want to make a call. The unvarnished truth is this: Once we hit talk, it's very nearly impossible NOT to drive a bit erratically. Like makeup, newspapers and kids, cell phones take our attention away from the road. It's all ghost dogs and bumper cars from there. And it appears most people don't mind--according to our survey, most are willing to take their chances. Nearly 70 percent of people surveyed believe driving and cell phones don't mix, and only 23 percent actually refrain from combining the two. These numbers go hand in hand with a National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) report that finds 80 percent of the 110 million cell phone subscribers are talking and driving at the same time, accounting for 54 percent of America's drivers.

Everyone's talking...but is anybody listening? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hopes so. Brush up on the NHTSA report about cell phones and the future. Cell phone survey
