jenrgw Who is More Likely to Text and Drive – Girls or Boys?

A new study suggests that the answer may be girls. The study issued by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and completed by researchers at the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center used in car video to study the driving habits of teen drivers. What they found is that teenage girls are twice as likely to use cell phones and other electronic devices while driving when compared to teenage boys.

Another interesting finding from the study was that both boys and girls are more likely to use cell phones and other electronic devices when they have no passengers in the car. Though, the study did confirm what previous studies have found and note that passengers in teen cars present different types of risks for teen drivers.

Researchers are urging that the information learned in this study be used to design further studies and to help protect teen drivers from future distracted driving accidents.
