Who are the worst-behaved drivers?
A new report from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that 88 percent of young millennials engaged in at least one risky behavior behind the wheel in the past 30 days, earning the top spot of worst behaved U.S. drivers.
These dangerous behaviors ― which increase crash risk ― included texting while driving, running red lights and speeding.
The findings come as U.S. traffic deaths rose to 35,092 in 2015, an increase of more than 7 percent, and the largest single-year increase in five decades.
“Alarmingly, some of the drivers ages 19-24 believe that their dangerous driving behavior is acceptable,” said Dr. David Yang, AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety executive director. (INT)
