Along with gauging drivers' knowledge of the rules of the road, the 2011 GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test also tested driver behavior. According to the study, women are more likely to engage in distracted driving habits than men. Distracted driving habits include eating, adjusting GPS devices, changing songs on MP3 players, taking pictures, applying makeup and even changing clothes. Here's a glimpse at some of the numbers:
  • Fifty-two percent of female drivers say they eat while driving (a 25 percent increase from 2010), as opposed to only 44 percent of male drivers
  • Eighty-three percent of female drivers admit to texting while stopped at red lights, as opposed to 71 percent of male drivers
  • Thirty-eight percent of female drivers said they did not engage in any distracted driving activities, as opposed to 46 percent of male drivers
The National Drivers Test encourages drivers to educate themselves on the rules of the road in order to prevent accidents that may result from distracted driving habits.
