Cell phone drivers involved in fatal road crashes in U.S. by age 2017

The statistic shows the percentage of U.S. drivers using cell phones who were involved in fatal road crashes in 2017, with a breakdown by age. Drivers aged between 20 and 29 accounted for around 37 percent of cell phone drivers involved in fatal road crashes. There were almost 52,300 fatal crashes on U.S. roads in 2017; 404 of drivers involved in fatal crashes were using a cell phone during the crash. As a possible attempt to stop people from texting while driving, U.S. police could implement the use of a Textalyzer: a device that taps into the phones of those involved in a crash and checks for recent activity.
