    Default Study: Multi-tasking triples car crash risk

    Study: Multi-tasking triples car crash risk

    Thursday, April 20, 2006; Posted: 11:07 a.m. EDT (15:07 GMT)
    (CNN) -- Multi-tasking drivers are three times as likely to be involved in a crash as more attentive motorists who don't dab on makeup, eat breakfast, or chat on cell phones, a new study reveals.

    The study offers scientific support for what most people already suspected: Inattentive driving causes accidents, and young drivers are much more likely to have inattention-related crashes.

    Almost 80 percent of crashes and 65 percent of near-crashes happen within three seconds of some form of driver distraction, according to the report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.

    The two research groups tracked the behavior of 241 drivers in 100 sensor-equipped vehicles for more than a year. During the 2 million miles of the study, the drivers were involved in 82 crashes and 761 near-crashes.

    Reaching for a moving object multiplied the risk of a crash or near-crash by nine times, according to the study. Reading, applying makeup, or dialing a handheld device tripled the risk.

    The study found that drivers between 18 and 20 were four times as likely to have inattention-related crashes and near-crashes as drivers over 35.

    Drowsiness is also a problem, the researchers found. They said drowsy drivers are four times as likely to have a crash or near-crash.

    Researchers found that the most common distraction for drivers is the use of cell phones. The seconds spent dialing are the most dangerous.

    "This important research illustrates the potentially dire consequences that can occur while driving distracted or drowsy," said Jacqueline Glassman, acting administrator of NHTSA. "It's crucial that drivers always be alert when on the road."

    Well, they can do all the studies and warn people until the cows come home, but it isn't going to change anyone's behavior on the roads.

    Unfortunately.

    We just had a kid roll his car and die while doing that. Why don't people get it?
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"
