According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety,

 “Cellphone use also affects how drivers scan and process information from the roadway. Drivers generally take their eyes off the roadway to dial or manipulate a hand-held phone. In contrast, drivers engaged in cellphone conversations and other forms of cognitive distraction tend to concentrate their gaze toward the center of the roadway, but their attention still may be diverted from driving and this may make it difficult for drivers to process what they are looking at. Researchers have found that brain activity associated with visual processing and attention is suppressed when drivers are cognitively distracted. Consequently, cognitive distractions can lead to so-called “inattention blindness” in which drivers fail to comprehend or process information from objects in the roadway even when they are looking at them. “

This means that looking at your phone while driving is very dangerous, but even once you look away, you might still be distracted from driving.

Don’t use your phone and drive, the results can be life changing.
