Here’s what the 2019 Travelers Risk Index found:

1. Texting is the biggest problem. Better than 4 in 10 people (44 percent) type or text when driving.
2. Travelers found that 23 of people admit to using social media while behind the wheel.
3. 22 percent of people surveyed admit to taking video or shooting pictures when driving.
4. Eight out of 10 drivers admitted to eating or drinking while driving.
5. Traveler’s found that 30 percent of people admit to “grooming while driving.”
6. Curbing distracted driving is like quitting an addiction. Thirteen percent of respondents said it would be difficult to stop reading texts or emails while driving.
7. Travelers found that workplace expectations may be contributing to distracted driving. While most businesses report being at least somewhat concerned about employees’ use of mobile devices on the road, an overwhelming majority (87 percent) of executives expect workers to be sometimes or frequently reachable outside of the office.
