AAA study finds millennial drivers worst behaved
For example, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety's 2016 Traffic Safety Culture Index found that while 78 percent of drivers believe that texting and driving is risky, almost one in three drivers (31 percent) admitted to doing it within the past month.
Rookie teenage drivers have always been seen as the worst motorists on the road, but now there's evidence that their older cousins - millennials - may be the most reckless people behind the wheel.
The study comes as traffic fatalities in the United States increased by 7 percent in 2015, making it the largest single-year increase in 50 years.
"It's critical that these drivers understand the potentially deadly consequences of these types of behaviors", Yang said, "and that they change their behavior and attitudes in order to reverse the number of fatalities on USA roads". The new survey results are part of the AAA Foundation's annual Traffic Safety Culture Index, which identifies attitudes and behaviors related to traffic safety. The data are from a sample of 2,511 licensed drivers ages 16 and older who reported driving in the past 30 days.
The biggest offenders? Young Millennials age 19-24.

Iverson said texting while driving is the most talked-about issue in distracted driving and added it is so risky because it requires directing both eyesight and brain power away from the road. Aside from being distracted, drivers doing this drift in and out of lanes as well as run red lights.
AAA said there's a scientific reason why young drivers are more likely to engage in unsafe behavior.
Drivers in the 19- to 24-year-old range were most likely to consider running red lights to be acceptable.
Also, drivers 19-24 were about twice as likely to type or send a text message or email while driving.
The AAA study asked drivers in all age groups whether they thought they were much more careful drivers than other people on the road.
