As states take measures to keep drivers from texting and talking while driving, a new report from researchers at the West Virginia University School of Public Health concludes that the laws probably aren't having much impact on the number of injuries caused by distracted driving. “Keeping an Eye on Distracted Driving,” appears in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The paper was co-authored by Jeffrey H. Cohen, M.D., interim dean of the WVU School of Public Health, and Motao Zhu, M.D., Ph.D. Both study public health and safety topics through WVU’s Injury Control Research Center.
