AAA study: millennials top list of worst behaved drivers

Share

AAA said USA traffic deaths increased by more than seven percent from 2014 to 2015, but most of us continue to share the same mentality.

Senior citizens, rejoice-you're no longer perceived as the worst drivers on the road. "About 88% of those millennials reported having engaged in those kind of activities in the past 30 days". Those behaviors include running red lights, speeding and, of course, texting while driving, AAA Tidewater said.

·Drivers ages 19-24 were 1.4 times as likely as all drivers to report having driven 10 miles per hour over the speed limit on a residential street.

Regions Financial Corporation (RF) Lifted to Buy at SunTrust Banks, Inc
The company reported the earnings of $0.23/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.23/share. Shareholders of record on Wednesday, February 22nd will be paid a dividend of 0.1574 per share on Monday, March 20th.

A new report from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety finds that young millennials are the riskiest drivers - but none of us are really setting a good example. But even mature drivers skirted the rules more often researchers expected.

When it comes to texting and driving specifically, drivers 19-24 were 1.6 times likely than others to read a text message or email while behind the wheel. Ninety-six percent of drivers say drowsy driving is a serious safety threat, but 29 percent had recently driven when they were so exhausted they had trouble keeping their eyes open.

Sixty percent of drivers say people who drive after using illegal drugs are a serious threat, but just 34% say the same about people who drive after using prescription drugs. The AAA report also found that 75% of drivers between the ages of 40 and 59 are guilty of the same thing.

Williams and German were supposed to be picked up where they were dropped off a few hours later but never showed up. Police said they are still collecting evidence at the scene of where the bodies were found.

Eighty-seven percent of drivers said they have never driven when they thought they were close to the legal alcohol limit.

Rookie teenage drivers have always been seen as the worst motorists on the road, but now there's evidence that their older cousins - millennials - may be the most reckless people.

"I want to emphasize that, again, 50 percent of the people who talked about their driving behavior in the 30 days before the survey indicated that they had done one of these bad driving behaviors, so we're all guilty of it", said Calcagni.
