Texting while driving is clearly dangerous, and campaigns to spread awareness and stop the behavior have reportedly helped lower the percentage of teens who text and drive.

Texting while driving is clearly dangerous, and campaigns to spread awareness and stop the behavior have reportedly helped lower the percentage of teens who text and drive. (Though it is still a frighteningly high number.) However, it may not occur to teens that other distracting behaviors could be just as harmful: 27% of teens say they sometimes change clothes and shoes while driving, with some admitting they often change contacts, do makeup, and even do homework (!) when behind the wheel. Distracted driving is the leading cause of accidents among drivers of all ages, and researchers are working to find ways to more effectively demonstrate the dangers of this behavior in driver’s education.
