Dangers of 'Car Phones' Known Early

Monday, December 07, 2009

We've talked a lot about research on the dangers of texting and even talking on the phone while driving.  But a new report out by our partner The New York Times shows evidence of a cell phone industry that was aware of those risks decades before most people had ever seen seen the devices initially marketed as "car phones."  It's part of the Times' Driven to Distraction series; we're joined by the series' editor, Adam Bryant, deputy business editor for The New York Times.
