Distracted driving going up nationwide: Report
Cambridge Mobile Telematics released new data looking at the prevalence of risky distracted driving.
We’ve all heard of the dangers of texting, tweeting or doing whatever else on your cell phone while driving, but it seems people aren’t heeding those warnings. Across the country, there’s actually been an increase in people driving while distracted, according to a new report.
“We did a similar analysis last year, and last year we observed the percentage of trips with distraction across the nation was 31 percent,” said Katherine Wellman of CMT. “This year, it’s up to 36 percent. It’s certainly increasing rather than decreasing, and that’s disconcerting.”
