hey Bannuel,
I think the solution is wrong. Statement 1 is flawed because mobile phones moving at a speed of more than 30 km/hr, does not only mean that it is necessarily in a car, on contrary, it can be a case where a person is traveling in a train or flight. So, this information will give misleading evidence re effect of mobile phone on driving.

on the other hand, statement 4 can be used to strengthen the fact that since other groups have also recommended to not use mobile phone then it would strengthen this citizen group argument to ban it

I like this point. Genius! I’m not sure if we are getting too granular but I like the little trap and I feel that the other problem with this answer or a genius Trap could be that the person is not the driver but a passenger in the car. This makes it a much harder question!

We just need to come up with a nice good other reason that would be solid and this could be our next wrong answer.

PS. This question was written by an American because there are no trains in the United States 😂 and the phone is supposed to be in flight mode while on the plane.

PPS. I have updated the answer choice and made A the incorrect one. Thank you!
I have added 2 weeks of GMAT Club tests to your account for this helpful suggestion.
