A new study -- funded by the insurance industry -- says that laws banning texting-while-driving have all of the effectiveness of a screendoor on a submarine.

The Star's Brad Cooper has a report on this here.
You can find a copy of the report -- which Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood describes as misleading -- here.
