The Institute of Industrial Engineers concluded that drivers are 20 times more likely to be involved in an accident while texting and driving as opposed to driving while intoxicated.
The scientific literature on the dangers of driving while sending a text message from a mobile phone, or driving while texting, is limited but growing.
A July 2010 Fairleigh Dickinson University Public Mind poll found 25% of New Jersey voters admitted to sending a text while driving, which was an increase from 15% in 2008.
This increase could be attributed to drivers over the age of 30 sending text messages.
Those who were drinking and driving at the limit of 80 mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood, reaction times slowed by 13% and 21% for those under the influence of cannabis.
In November 2014, Sawyer et al., from the University of Central Florida and the US Air Force Research Laboratory, published the results of comparative study in a driving simulator.
The International Telecommunication Union states that "texting, making calls, and other interaction with in-vehicle information and communication systems while driving is a serious source of driver distraction and increases the risk of traffic accidents".
The low number of scientific studies may be indicative of a general assumption that if talking on a mobile phone increases risk, then texting also increases risk, and probably more so. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has released polling data that show that 87% of people consider texting and e-mailing while driving a "very serious" safety threat, almost equivalent to the 90% of those polled who consider drunk driving a threat.Research by the Transport Research Laboratory showed that texting while driving slowed a driver's reaction time more so than drinking alcohol or using drugs.Driver's reaction times decreased by 46% while making a call, 37% when texting and driving, and 27% during hands-free calls.Investigations revealed that the engineer of that train had sent 45 text messages while operating.Despite these incidents, texting was still on the rise.
