Who Texts More, Kids or Adults?

Contrary to common belief, texting while driving is a vice more prevalent among adults than teens. A recent report by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project reveals that 47 percent of adults who text have done it while driving compared to 34 percent of teens who text. Activities such as reading or sending a text that distract a driver’s attention and take his or her eyes away from the road increase the risk of a crash. Warn your company’s drivers about the dangers, and be sure to have a fleet safety policy in place.
