A new Plymouth Rock Assurance study reveals that nearly two-thirds of drivers engage in distracted driving behavior on a daily basis.
The study, which consists of data surveys of 3,300 consumers, shows that texting and driving is one of the biggest distracted driving habit among drivers. More than 50 percent of respondents have witnessed another driver texting with at least one adult passenger in the car, and nearly 40 percent have witnessed a driver texting with at least one child in the car.
Recognizing the need to make an impact in the fight against dangerous driving practices, the study’s findings further underscore Plymouth Rock’s push for distracted driving awareness through their campaign launched in August 2013.
Encouraging drivers to join the fight against distracted driving, and in lieu of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, Plymouth Rock urges all drivers to sign the Pledge Against Distracted Driving. The Pledge is a commitment to refrain from cell phone usage and any other form of distracted driving, and always stay focus on the road.
