(Minneapolis, MN) — A study by the University of Minnesota is saying highway and interstate message boards with slogans against distracted driving may increase the amount of accidents. The school partnered with the University of Toronto to study the effect of crash death totals and clever messages against distracted driving on roads. The two universities used Texas accident numbers where the messages are only displayed one day each week. Findings from the study are suggesting the messages cause an additional 2,600 crashes and 16 deaths in the state annually. The study says that costs Texas an extra three-hundred-seventy-million dollars every year.
