The drive safety app Drivemode looked at driving data from 2.7 million U.S. drivers using Android phones between Jan. 2018 and April 30, 2019 and found that over 167 million miles and 13.3 million hours, Americans use their phone for a better part of an hour in the car on average.
Here's what we do during that hour of driving:
- Send 1 Text, Receive 5 Texts
- Spend 31.9 Seconds Listening to Voicemails
- Spend 8 minutes talking on the phone
- Spend 45 minutes listening to music
So even though we are more likely to receive more texts, we STILL send out an average of 1 text per hour while we drive.
