Topic: Texting and Driving
Title: "A meta-analytic comparison of the effects of text messaging to substance-induced
Impairment on driving performance"
The title tells me that the authors think that text-messaging may have the same effect on driving performance that substance intake does.
Intended audience: I think that the intended audience would consist of policy-makers who would have the authority to regulate texting and driving, as well as the general public, which consists of the teens and adults who usually text and drive.
Writer background: The authors do not have a background on public health, but they are experts in the field of communication, which covers texting. In particular, one author is a doctoral student, another is an assistant professor, and the third one is a professor.
