Many Parents Texting, Phoning While Driving Their Kids

The vast majority of parents admit to being distracted in some way while driving their young child around, a new survey reveals.
Among roughly 600 parents surveyed, nearly 90 percent said that in the past month they had engaged in at least one type of technological interaction that distracted them while transporting a child between the ages of 1 and 12 years old.
The No. 1 such distraction: phone calls.
Because this research was presented at a medical meeting, the data and conclusions should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.
