Texting more dangerous

Aware Of The Dangers, Drivers Text Anyway

Even though they say they are aware of the dangers, most drivers still continue to use their cell phones and text while driving according to a new survey from AT&T.

As part of a campaign against texting and driving, AT&T surveyed 1,004 US adults about their driving and texting habits. The survey showed that, while 98 percent said they were aware of the dangers;

  • Seventy-five percent admit to texting while driving.
  • Two-thirds have read text messages while waiting at a traffic light.
  • Twenty-five percent have sent text messages while driving.
  • More than one-quarter believe they are capable of safely doing several things at once while driving.
