National Teen Driver Safety Week (Day 3) – Survey Reveals Which Distractions Are Considered More Dangerous by Drivers

October 20, 2009 · · Filed Under Distracted Driving, Driver Performance Improvement, FuelClinic, LinkedIn, Teen Driver Safety 

A recent survey by LeaseTrader.com sampling 3000 drivers provided some interesting insight into the distractions that are perceived to be most dangerous by drivers.

LeaseTrader.com polled more than 3,000 drivers nationwide and asked men and women if there are other more dangerous distractions. Texting while driving is getting all the attention right now but you might be surprised at what people had to say.

LeaseTrader.com, the nation’s most popular online marketplace for car lease transfers, set up the survey to take the pulse of American drivers.

Results for men (click to embiggen):

Results for women (click to embiggen):

What do you think of these results? An interesting opinion poll or an indication that distracted driving training and awareness programs need to address a much wider array of problems? Is texting while driving underrepresented somehow?
