Model Mobile phone use in young people while driving

Young volunteers (n = 276) were surveyed for reasons they use mobile phones while driving their cars. The authors report a very high ownership (>99%) and use of mobile phones while driving (~100%). The authors report drivers believe talking on a mobile phone while driving is dangerous, they tend to communicate anyway, especially if they feel the call is important.
