31 percent of US drivers are morons who insist on texting and driving3/18/2013
Data from a Centers for Disease Control study confirm that nearly a third of Americans (31 percent) admit to sending or reading text messages while driving. Men ages 25-34 and women ages 18-24 had stats much higher than that. Both of those groups hit 50 percent. Comparisons to European countries showed them to be mostly smarter than the U.S. when it comes to texting and driving: Only Portugal had similar rates of recklessness among its drivers. The surveys were collected in 2011, so it's possible the numbers have gone down, thanks to traffic laws aiming to get drivers to quit texting. But if you're still at it, knock it off. Very few things in the world need to be said so much that you should take your attention away from the two-ton hunk of steel you're piloting. [Source]
