"New LoJack Survey Reveals that 50 Percent of Teens Talk and Text While Driving"

LoJack Corporation today announced findings from a survey conducted at the 2013 Massachusetts Teen Distracted Driving Leadership Summit in Boston.

More than 150 students were surveyed and results revealed:

  • Approximately 50 percent of teens use their cell phone while driving, both to talk and text.
  • 46 percent of teenagers surveyed believe distracted driving is a serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
  • 91 percent of students surveyed support initiatives to ban cell phone use during driving
  • 89 percent support the development and use of technology to help curb distracted driving.

Students that were surveyed also offered the following suggestions:
  • Make harsher laws
  • Put your phone on silent and away
  • Workshops on distracted driving
  • A phone ban for repeat offenders
  • Make a law for no phone usage for any age, while driving

These survey results support recent findings from AAA that 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, at any given moment during the day - a particularly poignant statistic considering the same AAA findings show that drivers who text while driving are eight times more likely to be in, or near, a crash.
