As we head into Easter weekend, many of you are making plans to be on the highway traveling to go see family. If you think you need to worry about the teens on the road that are texting while driving and not paying attention...think again. Recent statistics were released that should be alarm you.
According to a recent AT&T survey, nearly half of adults (49 percent) admitted to texting while driving, compared to only 43 percent of teens.
The scariest thing – 98 percent of the adults who admitted to texting while driving said they were well aware that it was a dangerous activity – but they did it anyway. 60 percent of those adults said they were not texting behind the wheel three years ago.
What's on your mind with this certain subject and how do we make the roads safer and people text less while driving??
Bbrrr...Winter is back. ( actually, winter has not left yet, I don't care what that rodent saw....) Keep it tuned to KFYR radio for all the latest weather and road information.
