The Virginial Tech Transportation Institute has completed a study on drivers texting inside their vehicles while driving. The findings show that the risk is far greater than previously thought.

The study outfitted the cabs of long-haul trucks with video cameras over an 18 month period and found when the drivers texted, their risk of a collision was found to be 23 times greater. Drivers typically spend 5 seconds using their devices, which at highway speeds can be equivalent to the length of a football field. For example, at 60 mph the vehicle would actually travel 440 feet in that time span; at 50 mph 367 feet; and at 40 mph 293 feet. You have to ask yourself whether you would be willing to drive more than the length of a football field, which is more than an entire city block, with your eyes off the road.

Texting has increased dramatically. In December texters in the U.S. sent over 110 billion messages.

Last month we learned that GM would be ending its joint venture, New United Motor Manufacturing Inc., with Toyota. Toyota is now going to begin discussions towards dissolving the venture with the “Old GM.” Toyota has been examining the US market after auto sales have been on the down side. Toyota is carefully looking at their options for NUMMI.

Toyota has said that the labor costs are not competitive with other plants in the U.S. such as Georgetown, Kentucky. The UAW has said that part of the reason for the joint venture was to have American employees learn Toyota’s methods of production, which are more efficient.
