From Expedia, a fun way to kick off the summer road trip season. Data from this year’s effort indicated that “The Texter” generates the most fury among pre-established categories of American drivers, earning scorn of 26 percent of 1,000 respondents. Rounding out the top five, “The Tailgater” (13 percent) ranked second, narrowly edging out “The Left Lane Hog” (12 percent), “The Crawler” (10 percent), and one of my least favorites “The Multitasker (7 percent).
From the report… This year we also took a look at the use of mobile technology. No one should be using his or her mobile phone while driving, but instead should pull over or ask a passenger to help out. Still, mobile technology can be super helpful when hitting the road! One out of four survey respondents has downloaded an app to assist with driving, with the most prominent being map apps (83 percent of survey respondents use these).
Perhaps most alarmingly—at least when considering current research on operating cell phones while driving—25 percent of all respondents admitted to “regularly or occasionally” talking on their mobile phone while driving.
