2011 GMAC Insurance Study Shows Drivers Are Distracted
The results from the 2011 GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test suggest drivers are not paying their full attention to the road. Instead, drivers are engaging in a number of distracting activities—some more shocking than others. Distracting driving habits range from smart phone and GPS use, to newspaper reading and even DVD watching! The following activities are ranked as the most common distracting driver habits as revealed by this year’s GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test:
1. Using a smart phone
3. Adjusting a GPS
4. Selecting songs on a MP3 player
5. Driving barefoot
In its seventh year, the GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test has continued to increase awareness about the importance of driver safety. It has also discouraged drivers from engaging in these types of dangerous and distracting activities.
