Think teens are the only ones texting while driving? Think again!
According to a recent report from AT&T, 49 percent of commuters are texting and driving, compared to 43 percent of teens. And 43 percent of those commuters call their texting while driving a “habit.”
AT&T says the problem of texting while driving has gotten worse, as three years ago six in 10 commuters said they never texted while driving. And 98 percent of commuters surveyed said they know sending a text or email while driving is not safe.
To help combat this problem, 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 by taking part in the Texting & Driving — It Can Wait movement.
