Driving While Taking Selfies

Distracted Driving

I think we should all be able to agree that texting and driving is dangerous, but a new study by the Institute of Advanced Motorists shows a trend far worse. Distracted driving reaches more than just the Kansas City Metro it is an International frustration. Now we can add Selfies.

Taking a Selfie While Driving

One in every five drivers are distracted by taking a selfie the same time they are driving. The number is 20 percent of drivers between 25 and 35 years old are taking a picture of themselves while driving. The study found that men take more selfies than women. One in eight men captured a picture of themselves while driving while females snapped a picture of themselves one in twenty.

Video Chat While Driving

If you think snapping a picture sounds bad, one out of every twelve drivers admitted to using Skype while driving.

Another campaign just launched by AT&T suggests that 70 percent of drivers engage in using their smartphones in one way or another while driving. The study showed that 40 percent of drivers admitted to using social media while driving. Of that 40 percent, 27 percent said they engaged in Facebook as the main thing that distracted them while driving.
