  • Abstract:
    Premise/hypothesis : The Department for Transport has commissioned surveys to monitor the levels of mobile phone use by drivers across England since 2002. Methods : Two or three-person teams conducted observational surveys of mobile phone use on representative road types in the South East of England. Daytime weekday surveys were conducted at 30 sites with 41, 056 car drivers and 9.085 van and truck drivers. The results are : weighted to represent the traffic distribution across England. Findings : An increasing trend in hand held and hands-free cell phone use was found between 2008 and 2009 (from 2.2% to 2.6% for hand held and from 1.1% to 2.4% for hands-free) suggesting that the effect of the 2007 increase in legal penalties may have been temporary, similar to the rebound after the initial legislation in 2003.
