Nearly nine in ten U.S. drivers (87%) have engaged in various distracted driving behaviors while operating a vehicle for personal reasons in the past 90 days, according to a new survey conducted by The Harris Poll.
What’s more, distracted driving isn’t just occurring while adults are alone in vehicles—80% of drivers who are parents of children under 18 say they do not always drive distraction-free when their children are in the car with them.
The online study found that the majority of U.S. adults (81%) are concerned about distracted driving impacting their safety on the road today, with 38% saying they are very concerned.
The majority of drivers who have engaged in texting, reaching for something, or talking on a mobile device (not hands-free) while driving in the past 90 days have done so even though they consider these actions to be distracted driving (68%, 66%, 59%, respectively).
To help end the societal prevalence of distracted driving, OnMyWay is spearheading social responsibility campaigns to engage companies, their employees, customers, and advocacy partners to SAVE LIVES and inspire change to make roadways and communities safer.
