Visualizing The Data Behind Distracted Driving in the United States

A map showing that as much as 40 percent of drivers are using their phones while driving in certain areas of Los Angeles.

Bloomberg has created a series of data visualizations demonstrating the widespread use of phones by individuals driving vehicles. The visualizations show that half of all individuals use their phones while driving at least ten percent of the time. In addition, the visualizations illustrate that drivers in New York City called, texted, or used apps on their phones roughly 22 percent of the time they were driving during the summer of 2019. Bloomberg created the visualizations using data from TrueMotion, a smartphone-based platform that tracks phone usage while driving.
