An American study into the impact of mobile use behind the wheel has found that all motorists take their eyes off the road for six minutes every hour they drive.
Teenage drivers increase the risk of having a crash by eightfold when using a mobile whilst driving. Experienced adult motorists are also affected by using a mobile behind the wheel, with the risk of crashing or narrowly avoiding a collision is more than doubled.
The study found that any that takes the driver’s eyes off the road can be dangerous and poses more of a risk for novice drivers.
