Posted on April 11, 2018

Finder surveyed 2,001 American adults about their riskiest habits to learn who the most dangerous drivers are — and what’s causing them to live in harm’s way.

Almost half (44.9%) of all drivers admit to chatting on their phones while behind the wheel in the past year. The next most likely dangerous driving habit is speeding (30.1%), representing an estimated 70 million Americans who admit to driving over the speed limit.

    Texting is not just a "teen" problem. There are millions of employees in company cars and fleet vehicles who try to "multi-task" behind the wheel. While many states seek to lower distracted driving by increasing penalties, fees and regulations, there is another option. There are anti-texting apps, like AT&T DriveMode which is FREE! One area that is rarely discussed is that each state has thousands of government vehicles that inspectors, regulators and the agricultural department use as fleet vehicles, but they do not have the technology to diminish distracted driving. I would love to see one state lead by example and use a program, like FleetMode, to block texts, redirect incoming phone calls, and impede all other apps in the State vehicles. If we want our state roads to be safer, let’s start by making our state vehicles safer.
