Commuters on freeways and highways across America watch out almost half of commuters self-reported texting while driving almost half of those who did called it a “habit” reported a survey commissioned by AT&T.
Commuters are texting and driving even more than teens.
In a recent study 49% of commuters admitted to texting while driving compared to 43% of teens.
Previously three years ago, six in 10 commuters say they never texted while driving.
Almost all(98%) of commuters surveyed said they know sending a text or email while driving isn’t safe.
Survey sponsor AT&T is calling on employers to help end texting while driving by taking action during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, and beyond.
