Buckle up everyone.

The number of drivers that you encounter on the roadways who engage in potentially dangerous behaviors is very high. According to Harris Poll regarding a new survey, there are more people who text, eat, and watch video’s than we ever imagined.

The poll of 2,800 adults found that 86 percent of drivers have eaten or drank when behind the wheel, 59 percent have spoken on a non-hands free cell phone, 41 percent work on their GPS unit and 37 percent have read or sent text messages.

“Additionally, 36 percent admit to map reading while driving, 24 percent have done their hair, 14 percent of have applied makeup, 13 percent have surfed the web and seven percent have actually watched a video while driving.”
