This study aimed to investigate the effects of mobile phone usage while driving. A sample of 882 drivers was surveyed to gather information on their mobile phone use while driving as well as their risk perception. The results show that 98.2% of the participants reported using their mobile phone for any purpose while driving (texting, calling, or answering).Although the rate of using mobile phone while driving is high for all residences, there were statistical significant differences in this behavior according to the nationality (98.6%for Saudi vs. 95.3%for non - Saudi).While there were no statistical significant differences according to age, education level, and driving experience.  

Practitioner Summary
: The use of cell phones while driving is ubiquitous in Saudi Arabia despite legislation banning this behavior. Further laws and regulations that prohibit using mobile phone while driving should be adopted and distraction among road users such as pedestrians is potentially an important issue of future research.
