Girls more likely to drive while distracted

Posted On Fri, March 30, 2012

A study released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety noted that teenage girls are much more likely to use electronic devices while driving.

The study, "Distracted Driving Among Newly Licensed Teen Drivers," said that teens are distracted by electronic devices - such as cell phones - more than anything else. Furthermore, females were approximately twice as likely to use these items while driving than their maile counterparts. Girls were also more likely to take part in other distracting activities.

"Cell phones, texting, personal grooming, and reaching for things in the car were among the most common distracting activities found when cameras were put in new teen drivers' cars," said Peter Kissinger, president and chief executive officer of the AAA Foundation.

While many consumers do practice safe driving, not everyone on the road adheres to such rules. In order to best protect a person when on the road, it may be a good idea to make sure their auto insurance policy is as sufficient as possible. By comparing auto insurance quotes, a person may be able to achieve this.
