What dangerous — and in some cases, illegal — driving behaviours are we talking about exactly? Here they are:
- Talking on cell phone while driving: 86%
- Speeding: 80%
- Texting while driving: 40%
- Driving after consuming alcohol: 34%
- Driving without a seat belt: 21%
Some parents just don't want to admit that they're bad drivers. According to the study, 58% of teenagers say they have witnessed their parents texting while driving, but just 40% of parents plead guilty.
Do as I say, don't do as I do? That couldn't be more true in this case, it seems.
What about you? Are you a bad example for your kids when you take the wheel?
