Here are some recent findings from the National Safety Council:
- Just about two-thirds (61%) of drivers text while they’re behind the wheel.
- Of those who post to Twitter while driving, 30% say they do it “all the time”.
- It’s not just Twitter and texting: 17% snap selfies or photos, 14% post Instagrams, 11% take Snapchats, and 12% shoot videos while behind the wheel.
- Of those who shoot videos while driving, 27% think they can do so safely.
Text-messaging while driving is banned in 46 states. Not Missouri. Be careful out there!
