Report excerpt

Driving behaviors since our last report have shown that distracted driving doesn’t follow the same patterns as other risky behaviors. As driving patterns have returned closer to pre-pandemic levels, speeding has fallen, likely as a result of more traffic on the roads.

Phone distraction, on the other hand, has continued to rise. February 2022 was the worst month for phone distraction in the US since the start of 2019. Drivers spent one minute and 38 seconds on average distracted by their phones for each hour of driving. This is a 30 percent increase over February 2020, the last month before the pandemic began.
