Whiteladies Road Texting: DG54DFV joins the dataset

Last week's Suspension Bridge visit showed that only 1 car in 100 in that traffic jam was texting. Maybe our Whiteladies Road "one car in 6" dataset was a fluke?

More study is needed, so here is another quick visit

This time, DG54DFV is the vehicle with a driver texting. We should start collecting gender statistics. Today: female.

Maybe there is something to do with the fact that this is often the journey into town, the inbound route, which encourages texting. We should stop and ask people about why they are texting or checking facebook to understand this. Or perhaps delegate this task to Avon and Somerset Police
