As anyone who pays automobile insurance premiums knows, the stereotype is that adults are safer drivers than teenagers. When it comes to texting and driving, however, adults are actually worse than teenagers. According to a survey done by AT&T, 49% of adults admit to texting and driving, compared to the 43% of teenagers who admit to doing so. Texting and driving is an especially dangerous form of distracted driving, because it takes the driver’s eyes, hands and mind off the road.
