New Moms Confess to Distracted Drive By SEO Admin on January 23, 2013

USA Today-January 23, 2013-Larry Copeland-According to the article new mothers are talking on the phone, texting or checking their email at an alarming high rate while driving with their babies in the car. Although, mothers are very protective of their babies, 78% of mothers with children under the age of 2 acknowledge talking on the phone while driving and 26% say they text or check their email while driving.

Cell phones arent the only thing distracting new moms. At least two-thirds of mothers said theyve been turned around to deal with their baby in the back while driving. The article goes onto to say that 10% of the surveyed mothers who drove an average of 150 miles a week, had been in a crash while driving with their babies. This is a crash nearly three times higher than that of the general public and one that closes in on the crash rate of teen drivers.

It is recommended that drivers leave their phones in the back seat while driving and that parents pull over and stop if they need to deal with the a child.
