For the Record
Distracted driving: In the July 6 Section A, an article on the dangers of technology use by drivers quoted a poll finding by Advocates for Highway & Auto Safety that 63% of drivers use their cellphones while driving, with that figure increasing to 73% among those who use their cars for work. The correct figures are 70% and 86%. The article also incorrectly credited Advocates for a poll finding that 70% of drivers have never used a do-not-disturb feature on their phones. That poll was conducted by Nationwide Insurance.
