Distracted Driving Survey

Despite the fact that texting while driving is illegal in most states, drivers continue to engage in this irresponsible activity. Even if we ourselves are careful about not texting while driving, we still have to deal with the many others on the road who seem to think its okay to put others in harms way just to respond to a notification on their phone.
AT&T released the results of a scary study this week finding that smart phones are allowing people to drive while distracted in new and elaborate ways.
According to the study:
61% of drivers surveyed admitted that they text and drive
33% admitted emailing while driving
28% admitted surfing the internet while driving
27% admitted using Facebook while driving
17% admitted snapping a photo or selfie while driving
14% admitted using Twitter while driving
14% admitted using Instagram while driving
12% admitted shooting video while driving
11% admitted using Snapchat while driving
10% admitted using video chat while driving
Most of these tasks are hard to do while sitting still, let alone driving a moving vehicle. Many demand intense concentration andlooking away for several moments, even minutes, to complete the task.

This is obviously a concerning trend. As society finds more and more uses for smartphones, it appears that we’re also creating more and more ways to drive in a distracted manner. As more and more apps and forms of social media arise, this list above will grow and the percentages will grow higher.
That’s bad news for all of us.
