Drivers Phone Families in the Car

Nearly a quarter of drivers have broken the law by talking to their families while behind the wheel, research from road safety charity Brake has revealed.

Almost a quarter (23%) of drivers have talked to family on the phone while driving while one-in-seven drivers (15%) have talked to friends on the phone while driving.

Meanwhile, one-in-six drivers (17%) have had a work-related call whilst driving. The survey showed that young drivers (17-24) were most likely to engage in phone calls with friends with more than a third (35%) of young drivers doing so whilst driving.
