Study finds texting laws don't reduce auto accidents

Wednesday, September 29, 2010By ALG

A new study says laws that ban texting while driving don't reduce accidents and might actually increase the risks.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's released its findings today in Kansas City.The insurance industry group compiled data from California, Louisiana, Minnesota and Washington immediately before and after driver texting was banned.

The study found the number of accidents actually increased in three of those states after the bans were implemented.

Institute spokesman Russ Rader says the increase might be the result of drivers trying to keep phones out of view while texting.

Highway officials say enforcement of the bans is just starting.
