If someone asked you who you think is more distracted – a teen or their parent – you’d likely say the teen. And you’d be right. We dug into the data and compared the distracted driving behaviors of teens and parents from June 1 through mid August spanning 6.7 million miles. We found that teens are over 50% more distracted than their parents.
What’s more concerning is that the higher the distraction gets, the bigger the gap becomes. 5 in 100 parents are distracted 15 minutes per hour behind the wheel. Teens are 3X this count – 15 in 100. 2.5 teens in 100 are distracted 30 minutes of every hour they drive.
