No Evidence To Show Cell Phone Ban Decreased Accidents

No Evidence To Show Cell Phone Ban Decreased Accidents
(Undated) -- A study shows there is no evidence to prove California's cell phone ban has any affect in decreasing the number of car accidents in the state. Professor Daniel Kaffine from Colorado University at Boulder says he expected to see a correlation.
The study showed driving while on a cell phone may not be as dangerous as driving while intoxicated, like it was previously thought. Kaffine says a number of reasons could be to blame, but points out people might have not followed the new law, skewing the numbers in the study.
