Figure 4.4.15: Hands free cell phone use while driving
Proportion of drivers (16+) that often use a hands-free cell phone while driving, Middlesex-London, Ontario and Peer Group, 2013/14
A much smaller proportion reported often using hands free when using their cell phone in the car. It was 13.8% in Middlesex London, which was significantly less than the Ontario rate.
Like non-hands free cell phone use, hands free use is more common among males than females. While the trend is not statistically significant the rate of hands free use increases as income increases (not shown).
