Distracted Driving Most Common In U.S.


    Compared to Europeans, Americans aren’t getting the message about distracted driving.

    FOX News Radio’s Chris Foster reports:

    Audio clip:

    The USA… number one at talking on cell phones behind the wheel, at least compared to seven countries in Europe in a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    It finds 69% of Americans admit to doing it, in the last month. Compared to 21% of drivers in England, the fewest in the survey.

    31% of American drivers say they text or e-mail while driving, tied with the Portuguese for most hooked on that habit.
