LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A new study looked at the prevalence of distracted driving near schools. Zendrive analyzed four million drivers near 75,000 schools. It found 88% of drivers are using their phones behind the wheel. One in three engaged in unsafe behaviors in a school zone.
Zendrive CEO, Jonathan Matus, says the afternoon pickup is more dangerous by about 40%. The hours of 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. are the most dangerous. Zendrive attributes it to heavier work traffic.
