SALT LAKE CITY -- A study recently released by the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that distracted driving is especially dangerous for novice drivers.

The study examined the dangers involved with dialing or sending a message as well as simply reaching for the phone while behind the wheel. On Thursday, Sgt. Todd Royce of the Utah Highway Patrol came to the FOX 13 News studio to discuss the dangers of distracted driving. See the video above for his interview.
