A lot of kids are not paying enough attention to the road.
FOX News Radio's Chris Foster reports:
Distracted driving is a factor in nearly six in ten crashes with teen drivers, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
(Sinclair Jr.) "Number one was interacting with one or more passengers, then using a cellphone, looking at something in the vehicle, looking at something outside the vehicle, and round it out with singing and dancing to music, grooming, and reaching for an object."
Robert Sinclair Jr. with AAA New York says they looked at 1,700 accident videos.
(Sinclair Jr.) "It's really incredible -- holding phones and texting and eyes off the road for more than four seconds at a time and at 60 mph that's equivalent to more than the distance of a football field."
That 58% distracted driving rate in teen driver crashes is four times the official figures based on police reports.
