CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. -- Texting while driving is a problem, but a new survey shows the distracted driving may be worse than previously thought. A survey from AT&T shows 70 percent of drivers say they use their smartphones while behind the wheel.
"It's very alarming and should be concerning for all of us," said Kevin Hanna with AT&T.
The survey shows more than 6 in 10 admit to texting, a third say they email while drive and nearly 30% admit to browsing the Internet.
"All of these things lead to a deadly combination," Hanna said.
Perhaps even worse, more than a third admit to using social media while driving: 27 percent check or post to Facebook, 14 percent use Twitter, 14 percent use Instagram and 11 percent admit to using Snapchat.
