NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) – A new study of teen driving behavior has found that the use of electronic devices is the leader among distracted driving behaviors, and that teenage girls are twice as likely as boys to use cell phones or other electronic devices while driving. The findings, from a study of video taken of young drivers, were released Monday by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Talking on the phone or texting while driving was the most common behavior that distracted young drivers, more so than adjusting controls, grooming, eating or drinking, or engaging in horseplay or loud conversations with passengers. The findings are notable given that distracted driving behaviors are believed to contribute to traffic accidents, injuries and fatalities — and traffic crashes remain the leading cause of death for young Americans.

“This new study provides the best view we’ve had about how and when teens engage in distracted driving behaviors believed to contribute to making car crashes the leading cause of death for teenagers,” said AAA Foundation President and CEO Peter Kissinger.
