Drivers Can’t Resist Shopping While Driving

Autosphere » Fleet » Drivers Can’t Resist Shopping While Driving

New study finds that drivers are more stressed and more distracted this time of year.

While distracted driving is always a concern, it seems to get worse this time of the year. According to the 2019 Holiday Distracted Driving Report released by Root Insurance, almost 2 in 5 Americans who shop on their phone do so while driving (39%); up 4% from last year.

Men are more likely than women to admit to doing so (49% vs. 30%). Of those who shop on their mobile device while driving, 46% say they’ve browsed for items while driving during the holidays, checked an order status (45%), and checked the availability of an item in-store (40%); 33% have actually completed a purchase.

“Our annual survey brings to light something many of us have long believed: that driving during the holidays can be particularly stressful and distracting, making it one of the most important times of year to be a safe driver and co-pilot,” said Conor Day, Director of Product at Root.
