“AAA believes the new voice-to-text study done by the Texas A & M Transportation Institute  (TTI) is a step in the right direction. Past research confirms what we’ve known for many years that hands-free driving isn’t risk-free driving.  Most people understand the risks of distraction and other risky behaviors but refuse to apply what they know to their own behavior. While this study by TTI looks at texting, later this year AAA will be releasing a sophisticated comprehensive study that looks at the dangers of mental distraction and the implications for drivers.”
