STUDY: MORE PEOPLE ARE DRIVING DISTRACTED

posted by Dave -

A troubling new survey finds lots of drivers still use their phones behind the wheel.Driver analytics company Zendrive looked at data from three million anonymous drivers for three months. They found Americans used their mobile devices during 88 percent of car trips, and that during hour-long drives, those behind the wheel spent an average of 3.5 minutes using their phones. Zendrive also broke down driver behavior by location to determine the top five states for distracted driving: Vermont, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Arkansas. Since traffic deaths saw a spike in 2016, this study is yet another call to action, reminding drivers that accidents caused by distractions can be prevented by simply putting down the phone.
