You don’t have to spend any amount of time driving to see people doing really stupid things behind the wheel, but we’re surprised by how many people are having sex while driving.
According to Jabra, which makes phone headsets, 15 percent of people surveyed said they “have performed sex or other sexual acts” while driving. There’s always the possibility people are claiming they’re getting freaky in traffic to sound cool, but the survey found many drivers are doing more than driving while commuting.
Jabra surveyed 1,800 people in six countries and says the study has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.1 percent. People might have monkey-wrenched the online survey, but the findings are in line with some we’ve heard. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood calls distracted driving “a deadly epidemic” and says seven out 10 people use cellphones and other gadgets while driving. He’s working with automakers to address the issue.
