Are you guilty of texting while driving? Did you know that distracted driving is a major cause of deadly wrecks? According to Safeco 1 in 4 car crashes involve cell phone use. We know we should not do it, so why do we continue? It truly can wait.
U.S. drivers are picking up some bad habits and they’re unwilling to let go of them. Our cars have more connectivity features than ever before. But I ask if this is a good idea?
Despite a host of education campaigns and the fact that most know better, the majority of drivers — 92 percent — still use their phones while behind the wheel of the car according to a new study from Everquote, Inc., an online insurance marketplace.
The report data comes from analyzing more than 2.7 million vehicle trips and 230 million miles driven, and ranks a number of driving habits from a low of 1 to a high of 100. Speeding and cell phone use are still proving to be a deadly combination, and the study found that nationally, drivers earned a score of 79 or a “C” for their driving skills.
So, where do Midwestern drivers rate? Midwesterners are the safest drivers, scoring an 83 out of 100. Not bad but I think we can do better! Put your phone down - It truly can wait.
