The study counted hands free use as well making it quite a worthless metric for stopping accidents.

On the contrary, that makes it the correct metric. Studies have shown that "hand-free" is as as dangerous as other cell phone use. It's still completely distracting you from paying attention to the road, and thus it's still highly dangerous.
