A new poll by State Farm Insurance finds that nearly one in four drivers accesses the web while driving. The four-year survey also shows an increase in older drivers who own smartphones, and that adults and seniors - not just teens - are texting while driving. We'll discuss the findings and ideas to encourage safer driving.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Chris Mullen, director of technology research for State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company and lead researcher on their distracted driving survey
  • Daniel Hill, public information officer with the California Highway Patrol
  • David Strayer, professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Utah and leader of the Distracted Driving Lab
