U.S. Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) recently announced a federal grant of more than $182,000 that will be awarded to West Virginia University for research on the impact of laws banning cell phone use while driving.
The grant funding comes from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, an organization that conducts and supports national research on topics of public health and human development.
Through the grant, West Virginia University’s research team will determine the national impact of cell phone laws, rates of vehicle accidents among drivers under the age of 25, and the enforcement of calling and texting while driving. West Virginia University will make the information available to other researchers, government agencies and scientific communities once the data is collected and analyzed.
