First federal survey on texting while driving: More than half of high school seniors do it
Think your teen would never text while driving? More than half of high school seniors admitted in a government survey that they’ve done just that.
It’s the first time the question was asked in a teen poll on risky behavior, and the finding comes amid a renewed federal crackdown on distracted driving.
Texting and cellphone use behind the wheel is “a national epidemic,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said Thursday.
“We need to teach kids, who are the most vulnerable drivers, that texting and driving don’t mix,” LaHood said at a Washington news conference to announce pilot projects in Delaware and California to discourage distracted driving. (Associated Press)
