Drunk Driving is Safer than Texting and Driving?

Among adult drivers, nearly half (49%) admit they text while behind the wheel. Only 43% of teen drivers admit the same behavior. Maybe teen drivers were not as forthcoming when responding to the AT&T survey, but it seems adults have surged ahead as behind-the-wheel texters.

 

Either way, the numbers indicate that texting while driving “is not a young drivers’ problem; it’s an ‘every driver’ problem,” suggests Garrison Wynn, a nationally known speaker and consultant specializing in workplace safety. He urges drivers of all ages to eliminate distractions: “Remind yourself, your colleagues, family members and friends that when you are behind the wheel, you have one task. You drive.”
