Survey: Adults text and drive more than teens
It now appears adults are the biggest texting-while-driving offenders.
A new survey by AT&T found almost half of all adults admit they text while driving. And adding to the problem, almost all of them admit they know it's wrong, but still do it.
The same study found 43 percent of teenagers say they text while they drive.
According to the National Safety Council there are about ten million teen drivers, but about 180 million adult drivers.
