No Distractions Here...

 

In this fast-paced world of multi-tasking and overbooking, don't take chances with your safety.  In 2010, State Farm conducted an online survey found that 19 percent of drivers use the Internet while driving, primarily on their smartphones.

Despite the laws here in California banning the use of handheld phones while driving, statistics show it's still happening.  And a record number of accidents involve distraction driving.

Survey respondents consisted of 912 drivers who met the following criteria: had a valid driver’s license, reported driving at least one hour per week, and owned a smartphone.

Of these drivers, 19 percent admitted to using the Internet while driving. The top five Web-based activities they engage in are:

  • Finding/reading driving directions
  • Reading email
  • Looking up/referencing specific information of immediate interest
  • Looking at/reading social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
  • Composing/sending email

Most respondents who said they use the Internet while driving reported that they engage in these activities when stopped at a stop light or stopped in heavy traffic. They also commonly said they access the Internet when driving alone, during daylight hours, or on long drives on the interstate. Approximately 40 percent of the U.S. population owns a smartphone, according to State Farm.

Another insurance company survey, conducted by Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company and also conducted in 2010, found that a record 40% of accidents were related to distrated driving. You can download a copy of this survey results here.
