Young adults appear to be the chief culprits in terms of texting and talking while driving.
A AAA Mid-Atlantic poll found more than eight out of ten respondents ages 25 to 39 reported using a phone while driving...43% of them said they do it regularly.
Also, 45 percent in that same age group admitted to sending texts while driving...ten percent confessing to texting on a regular basis.
By comparison, just under six in ten of drivers 16 to 18 say they've used a cell phone behind the wheel.
31 percent say they've sent or received a text while driving.
Nearly nine out of ten people think distracted driving is a bigger problem now than it was three years ago.
