The data covered more than 100 billion miles of driving and 100,000 of what the company identified as "risky driving events." Lytx found that talking on the phone hands-free was somewhat distracting, but many drivers significantly compounded that distraction by engaging in other activities, including using other devices, smoking or eating.
