Observational Study of Cell Phone and Texting Use Among California Drivers 2015 and Comparison to 2011 through 2014 Data

Abstract: 

In the 2015 observations, the majority of drivers (73.0%) drove alone, and 22.0% had one passenger in the car. The increase of drivers driving alone since 2014 (4.8%) and the decrease (3.5%) of drivers driving with one passenger is significant (Table 13).
