Millennials Top AAA’s List of Worst Drivers
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that 88% of millennials have engaged in at least one risky behavior while driving in the past month. That earns them the title of "Worst Behaved U.S. Drivers."
“Alarmingly, some of the drivers ages 19-24 believe that their dangerous driving behavior is acceptable,” said Dr. David Yang, AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety executive director. “It’s critical that these drivers understand the potentially deadly consequences of engaging in these types of behaviors and that they change their behavior and attitudes in order to reverse the growing number of fatalities on U.S. roads.”
Here's the breakdown of the age groups and the percentage of them that engaged in speeding, running red lights, or texting while driving:
- Ages 19-24: 88.4%
- Ages 25-39: 79.2%
- Ages 40-59: 75.2%
- Ages 16-18: 69.3%
- Ages 75+: 69.1%
- Ages 60-74: 67.3%
