AAA Report Finds Millennials Are The Worst Drivers On The Road
AAA released their annual worst drivers on the road report and what did it find? It confirmed what many people believe, millennials are the worst on the road and the survey finds they’re more reckless than teens.
AAA Spokesperson Don Redman says drivers between the ages of 19 to 24 seem to be distracted behind the wheel.
“Speeding, running red lights, texting behind the wheel. About 88% of those millennials reported having engaged in those kind of activities in the past 30 days.”
Redman says although those 19 to 24 are considered the worst drivers, older motorists also admitted to engaging in dangerous behavior while driving.
“In many cases, even the 40-59- year-old group is worse than teenagers when it comes to those kinds of behaviors.”
The report also finds millennials are more likely than anyone else to go over the speed limit by 10 to 15 miles and be high on marijuana while driving. Redman says motorists aged 19 to 24 engage in higher risk behavior more than other age groups.
“50% of them admitted that there were opportunities for them to stop at a red light but instead they gassed it to get through that intersection, even though they could’ve stopped.”
