Millennial Drivers Are Not Very Safe
According to USA Today, almost 90 percent of Millennial drivers do risky things on the road. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found 88% of drivers ages 19 to 24 acknowledged engaging in risky behavior such as texting while driving, running red lights or speeding.
Nearly half of Millennials reported running a red light even if they could have stopped safely. Nearly 12 percent of Millennials said it was acceptable to speed 10 mph over the speed limit in a school zone.
Alarmingly, some of the drivers ages 19 to 24 believe that their dangerous driving behavior is acceptable.
The findings come as driving is becoming more dangerous. The number of traffic deaths in the USA rose to 35,092 in 2015. Check out more information here by clicking on pressreader.com.
