Distracting driving habits range from smart phone and GPS use, to newspaper reading and even DVD watching! Drivers are doing more than making phone calls. People are texting, emailing and even checking and updating social networking sites while driving. An alarmingly high percentage of drivers are still using various features of their smart phones while operating their vehicles. Almost two-thirds of drivers say they make phone calls and 8 in 10 drivers admitted to reading and sending text messages while stopped at red lights. Fifty percent of the drivers say they make phone calls while driving in "slow traffic" or "while driving on an open highway." Fifteen percent of drivers admitted to sending and reading texts while driving. Conversely, 80 percent of drivers say it is never safe to text, email or use their smart phones while driving.

People are mostly using their phones for calling and text messaging while driving. But, a percentage of drivers admitted to sending and reading emails and using their downloaded applications on their smart phones while operating their vehicles. Some drivers say they use their smart phones to take pictures and some are even updating their Twitter and Facebook pages.
