Don’t just blame teens for using their mobile phones when driving

Although some recent research from the USA has focussed on teenagers texting and talking when driving, new figures show that adults are even more irresponsible with their mobiles.

A report from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project shows that American adults are just as likely to have texted while driving as teenagers. Adults are also more likely than teens to have talked on their mobile phones while driving, although neither group was asked whether or not they'd used a hands-free kit.

When it comes to specific figures, 27% of American adults say they've texted while driving, compared to 26% of teenagers of driving age. And 61% of adults have talked on their phones while driving, compared to 43% of 16- and 17-year-olds.
