The roads are a little less safe this year than they were last year, according to the results of a study on distracted released today by the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). (pdf) According to a press release released by the OTS today, "the study found 10.8 percent of drivers on the road using cell phones at any given daylight time, up from 7.3 percent in 2011." Oh, and it's those damn kids' fault: "Although observed cell phone use increases were seen across all age groups, 16 to 25 year olds showed a dramatic rise, doubling from 9 percent to 18 percent."
