Cell Phones and Driver Distractions

Edward J. Hudak Jr., Chief of Police at the Coral Gables Police Department, says the more things they enter into the car the more distracted the driver is going to be. "Kids for the most part suffer from this phenomenon called FOMO (Fear of Missing out on Everything). And with the newness of driving, that FOMO type of attraction automatically deflects them."

He also explains a secondary distraction from driving at speeds of 50 miles an hour can lead to catastrophic injuries.
