Risky driving behavior continues on U.S. roadways according to the 2022 Travelers Risk Index on distracted driving, source.
While one-third of the respondents say their own driving behavior has improved over the last years, 42% admitted to making phone calls and reading text messages while driving.
The survey results suggest that work-related pressure might lead to risky driving behavior. Almost every manager in the survey, 86% (!), expects employees to respond to work-related communications at least sometimes while outside the office during work hours.
