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.

Guests:

David Strayer, professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Utah and leader of the Distracted Driving Lab

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
