Teens Are Not Texting and Driving As Often. . . But Are Now Doing Homework While Driving
Great news, parents....your kids are doing their homework. The scary news? They are doing their homework while DRIVING.
According to research from the Oregon State University, teens have cut back on texting and driving, thank goodness! Sadly, they have substituted that with OTHER tasks.
27% of teens change their clothes and SHOES while behind the wheel. Others have admitted to changing their contacts, applying makeup...and others admit that they are doing their homework while driving. We can only assume that the results of this study would show even higher percentages if the kids were HONEST about their driving habits.
The researchers said, quote, "We were pretty surprised at the changing clothes bit. Teens are busy, I guess."
