Communication technologies and their impact on texting while driving

This study focuses on whether the immersion in communication technologies plays a central role in the lives of people born after 1984, and whether people born after 1984 text while driving more than those born before 1984. The sample is made up of 181 participants and the data was collected through the use of a survey which consists of seventeen items. Using the Pearson Chi-Square test and cross-tabulations, it was found that 1) the younger generation does indeed text while driving more often than the older generation, 2) both generations agree that people should obey driving laws, and 3) there are no differences between either age group in relation to how dependent they are on cell phones.
