A new poll indicates that mobile phone use while driving is common in the Rochester area. About 800 people who responded to a recent survey admitted to using their cell phones (and not the hands-free way) while driving in the last month, with 25% of those admitting to texting while driving.
Some scary statistics: "There have been more than 935,000 crashes nationwide this year alone involving drivers using cellphones or texting. And a driver is 23 times more likely to get into a crash while texting."
