AT&T: Adults text-and-drive more than teens
According to USA Today, all eyes are on the adults.
The older, allegedly less-hip generation are worse than teenagers when it comes to texting-while-driving.
“Almost half of all adults admit to texting while driving in a survey by AT&T provided to USA TODAY, compared with 43% of teenagers. More than 98% of adults — almost all of them — admit they know it’s wrong. Six in 10 say they weren’t doing it three years ago,” according to the newspaper.
The survey was of 1,011 adult drivers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than nine people are killed and 1,060 injured in crashes caused by distracted driving on average every day.
Thirty-nine states and the District of Columbia has banned texting while driving for all drivers.
