A CAA poll finds an overwhelming majority of Canadians think texting and driving is getting worse, despite moves by law enforcement to crack down and extensive public education efforts. More than 83% of Canadians believe texting while driving is a bigger problem than it was 3 years ago. Texting and driving is tied with drunk driving as the #1 road safety concern among Canadians according to the poll. A whopping 96% say that drivers who text and drive are a threat to their personal safety on the road. Other forms of distractions are of concern, such as e-mailing while driving; talking on the phone and drivers engaged with in-car tech.
