Millennials More Prone to Distracted Driving

Parent Interventions

Millennials are more prone to distracted driving, according to a research undertaken by Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Millennials were found to be texting and getting distracted with cell phone usage while driving when compared to the older parents, according to the study. Millennials are those born between 1981 and 1996. The Distracted Driving Survey (DDS) was done with 435 parents. It was observed that millennial parents had higher DDS scores compared to older parents.


The solution to reducing accidents caused by DDS is to use apps or programs that limit texting while driving and also engage with child's pediatrician.
