Distracted driving causes nearly 11% of Arizona traffic accidents. According to a recent study by Arizona's Department of Public Safety, the most frequent cause of distracted driving accidents our "outside" influences, which account for nearly a quarter of all distracted driving accidents. Second to outside influences was reaching from something inside the vehicle. After that (and a surprise to some) was cell phone usage.
Arizona is woefully behind on passing any legislation that bans distracted driving. In fact, Arizona is one of only five states that doesn't have any such laws on the books. For more details, check out the Phoenix New Times article on the subject:
