Only a tiny percentage of accidents are due to cell phone usage. 17 percent of all crashes are due to distracted driving, and only 17 percent of those are due to cell phone use, and only part of those are due to texting. 385 people died from cell phone use while driving in 2011; that’s a tiny number compared to all the accidents on the roadway. http://www.distraction.gov/download/811737.pdf My IPhone 5 does voice-to-text, so it’s even more convenient!
