Half of teen-caused car accidents are due to distracted driving

A new study finds that more than half of accidents caused by teens are due to distracted driving, reported.

1,691 teens voluntarily had cameras installed in their car by the owner for various reasons, including to monitor the teen’s driving or for insurance discounts. AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety studied these videos and found that more than 58% of moderate to severe accidents between 2007 and 2013 were due to distracted driving.

Common problematic activities included sending and reading text messages, applying makeup, speaking with other people inside the vehicle, singing animatedly, receiving and making calls, and dancing to music while driving.
