Parents Texting and Driving

While there has been a focus on teens texting while driving, a new survey out of Michigan suggests parents are just as guilty.

FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper explains:

Audio clip:

Over 600 parents were surveyed by the University of Michigan about what they do while driving.

Almost 90% admit texting while their children are in the car. Or as Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw says, engaging in other activities…

(Shaw) “We see people that are shaving with an electric shaver… you have people putting makeup on… you have people doing a lot of different things in there.”

Most drivers reported doing at least four of the ten distractions asked about in the study. The study is being presented at the Pediatric Academic Society’s meeting in Washington DC.
