They basically defined "aggressive" as intentional. Cell phone usage was not mentioned in the number one cause of fatal accidents.
Bottom line is that just because there's a small fringe movement of moms who lost their teenage kids due to someone texting doesn't mean it's the "number one" reason for accidents.
