jenrgw Do not Surf and Drive! Survey Finds Increase in Internet Use Among US Drivers

Drivers using the internet while driving are a growing problem, according to a recent survey by State Farm Insurance. The study found that drivers using the internet while driving increased from 13% in 2009 to 18% in 2011. The statistics were even more dramatic among drivers aged 18-29. In that group, the percentage who use the internet and drive rose from 29% in 2009 to 43% in 2011. The number of drivers using social media or social networks while driving also increased.

Interestingly, State Farm found that the percentage of drivers who text and drive stayed the same or declined from 2009 to 2011. The survey did not look at why texting numbers are decreasing as internet use numbers are increasing. However, new laws banning texting and driving and public awareness campaigns may have played a part. Now, it is time to bring the same awareness to the dangers of using the internet and driving.

Will you pledge to stop using the internet and driving? If you are ready to be part of the solution, please share your pledge with us today!
