One third of drivers age 18 to 24 said they had sent or received a text message or email while driving, according to the 2011 Washington Driver Survey recently released by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.
Staci Hoff with the traffic safety Commission says the survey results are used nationally to track trends and evaluate the effectiveness of safety programs, particularly with drivers involved in fatal crashes.
She says Washington State added the question on driver cell phone use...
When it comes to speeding, three quarters of Washington drivers thought they would likely get a ticket for going 68 mph on a freeway posted for 60 mph.
About two thirds of drivers in our state reported that they rarely or never go over 30 in a 25 mph zone.
The survey also finds that over 90 percent of drivers thought they were likely to get arrested if they drove drunk.
