Hawaii LRB Study : Cell Phones & Collisions

 The Hawaii Legislative Reference Bureau (LRB) has published the first of three new studies requested by the 2005 Hawaii Legislature. House Concurrent Resolution No. 294, S.D. 1, adopted by the Legislature in the 2005 Regular Session, requested the Bureau to conduct a review of existing studies and statistics on the causal relationship between wireless telephone use while operating a motor vehicle and increased motor vehicle-related accidents. The LRB report finds that "a statistical association, not necessarily a causal relation, exists between cellular telephone use while operating a motor vehicle and motor vehicle collisions." Similar studies and their conclusions were reported in FR here and here.
