The Sun report #DontDriveDristracted

The Sun

Results from our driver distraction poll were featured in The Sun today.

'Motorist app risk'

ONE in six young male drivers has pranged their car while using a smart phone app, insurers revealed yesterday.

A third of all motorists aged 17 to 25 admit playing games like Angry Birds at the wheel.

Two thirds also confessed to texting from their cars in a study by insurance firm ingenie.

Boss Richard King said: “The rapid growth of social media and mobile is creating a new breed of in-car distraction.

“We're increasingly using smartphones to occupy ourselves during down time – but driving is an active pursuit and it needs full attention.“
