New Survey: Adult Drivers Drive And Text More Than Teens?

Last week, AT&T released the results of a new survey that suggests adult commuters may text while driving more than teens. According to the survey, 49% of commuting adults (compared to 43% of the teens in a separate survey) admitted to texting while driving, despite 98% of respondents acknowledging that sending a text or email while driving isn’t safe.

What’s even more serious is that the survey suggests the problem may be growing.  60% of the commuters indicated they had never texted while driving three years ago, and over 40% admitted they text habitually.  As adults have gradually adopted texting as a form of communication, the dangers of texting while driving are also on the rise for these newer users.

Despite public awareness efforts trying to educate the public on the hazards of texting, there are hundreds of thousands of injuries due to distracted driving on the road each year according to the NHTSA.  If you or a loved one has been hurt in a car accident due to a distracted driver, you should consulting with an experienced car accident lawyer from the Brunkenhoefer Law Firm to discuss your legal options.  The attorneys of the Brunkenhoefer Law Firm have over 37 years experience representing the victims of personal injury throughout South Texas, in Corpus Christi, Alice, Kingsville, Victoria, San Antonio, Robstown, Portland, and Kennedy.  Contact an experienced Corpus Christi car accident lawyer at (361) 888-8808 today for a free consultation.
