Here are some statistics from a 2008 survey on Teen cell phone use while driving:

  • 48% of young Americans from 12-17 say they've been in a car while the driver was texting.

  • 52% of 16- and 17-year-old teen drivers confess to making and answering cell phone calls on the road. 34% admit to text messaging while driving.

  • In 2007, driver distractions, such as using a cell phone or text messaging, contributed to nearly 1,000 crashes involving 16- and 17-year-old drivers.

  • Over 60% of American teens admit to risky driving, and nearly half of those that admit to risky driving also admit to text messaging behind the wheel.

  • Each year, 21% of fatal car crashes involving teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19 were the result of cell phone usage. This result has been expected to grow as much as 4% every year.

  • Almost 50% of all drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 are texting while driving.

  • Over one-third of all young drivers, ages 24 and under, are texting on the road.

  • Teens say that texting is their number one driver distraction.

  • For every 6 seconds of drive time, a driver sending or receiving a text message spends 4.6 of those seconds with their eyes off the road. This makes texting the most distracting of all cell phone related tasks.
