Texting & Driving On the Rise

Autosphere » Fleet » Texting & Driving On the Rise

Canadians are more worried than ever about distracted driving.

A Canadian Automobile Association poll finds an overwhelming majority of Canadians think texting and driving is getting worse, despite moves by law enforcement to crack down and extensive public education efforts.

More than 83% of Canadians believe texting while driving is a bigger problem today than it was three years ago.

“Despite anti-texting and driving laws in all provinces across the country and several years of public education campaigns, Canadians still don’t seem to be getting the message,” says Jeff Walker, Chief Strategy Officer, CAA National.

“Studies show drivers are as much as 23 times more likely to get into a collision when they text and drive. It’s important we all put our devices down and stay focused on the road.”

Canadians also believe other forms of distraction are increasingly an issue, such as emailing while driving, drivers talking on cell phones and drivers talking to/engaging with their in-car technologies.
