The methods used by the NHTSA were described in the reference, and they
listed the many limitations, so, I refer you back to the paper for that
Your question brings up a *major* point, which is that people don't
understand the references.
They jump to wild and fantastic fabrications as to what the references
actually proved, and how they proved it.
That is, I suspect, one of the major components of the easily disproven yet
still immensely common myth that cellphone use "causes" appreciable
accidents in the real world (in the US and Australia).
Yep, you did just that. That one was JUST about what happens
with CARS STOPPED AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHTS, and you stupidly
made all sorts of wild claims that it said anything useful about
what drivers do with the cellphones WHILE DRIVING AT SPEED.
How odd that you haven't managed to do anything of the sort.
Even that reference you stupidly posted actually proves that
fuck all are actually stupid enough to use a cellphone while
DRIVING AT SPEED since it must be only a small percentage
of those who have been observed to use the cellphone
WHEN STOPPED AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS etc, and even if say
10% of those do have an accident as a result of that stupidity,
that would mean that less than 1% of drivers would have an
accident due to the use of a cellphone WHILE DRIVING AT
SPEED and that is such a small number that that would be
completely invisible in the total accident stats in the USA.
It isnt a myth, it’s a fact with a number accidents PROVEN to have
been caused by the use of a cellphone WHILE DRIVING AT SPEED.
We know that that has happened from the accident investigation,
you silly little pathological liar/pathetic excuse for a lying troll.

Give us a break, woodja? Thanks. -- tlvp
Knees! Knees! Doesn't everybody steer with their knees? Hell! I have
seen a cop in a cruiser with his cell phone held to his right ear with
his left hand while he was taking notes with his right. All while his
car was in motion.
I can only assume he was steering with his knees, that or he had some
auto-pilot prototype police cruiser attached to his butt.
With the phone plugged in for a recharge in your ,SIRI can be
contacted by voice and she will both send and read messages for you.
I did this with my 6 today and could hear and be heard on it, lying on
the seat next to me.

Yet the state of California makes over 10 billion dollars alone over ten
years, just from the single cellphone use ticket (nominally $20 for a first
offense, which is the lowest fine in the entire country of the states that
have the laws).
New Jersey makes half of what California makes.
Alaska charges $10,000 per ticket! (<==== that's crazy!)

You could at least look it my fact before claiming it was bullshit.

Thanks Ed, for that cite.
Rod Speed, if he's true to form, will come up with some way of
telling you that it's bullshit, a lie, or a troll.
Basically, he's wedded to his intuition, which, to him, says a cellphone
ticket can't be 10,000 dollars, so, if you actually show it to him, he will
likely never believe you anyway.
What he comes up with is all sorts of fantastic fabrications (hence my

There are two kinds of people at least:
a. Those, like me, who are wedded to facts, not opinions, but who can change
their ideas when shown the facts, and,
b. Those, like Rod Speed, who are wedded to his own opinions, and who will
likely never change his mind, facts to the contrary be damned.
Just you wait and see...
