We’ve all heard the refrain that you shouldn’t text and drive. Well, it seems there is a whole slew of other questionable phone-related behavior we need to stop.

A new survey by AT&T has revealed some alarming facts about what motorists do with their phones while behind the wheel.

  • Text (61%)
  • Email (33%)
  • Surf the net (28%)
  • Facebook (27%)
  • Snap a selfie/photo (17%)
  • Twitter (14%)
  • Instagram (14%)
  • Shoot a video (12%)
  • Snapchat(11%)
  • Video chat (10%)

Those are obviously some eye-opening figures and go hand-in-hand with an AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety survey which found that 36% of drivers in 2014 had read a text or an email — a jump of nearly one-and-a-half percent from the year before. The study found 27% typed a text or email, also an increase from the previous year.

The AT&T survey of nearly 2,100 people found 30% of people who tweet while driving do it “all the time” and 22% who use social media on the road claim it’s an addiction. Meanwhile, 62% of all motorists polled make sure their smartphones are within easy reach.
