Recent survey findings from ingenie®, the car insurance brand for young drivers, have revealed that 58% of 17-25 year old drivers agree that smartphone apps are causing young people to be more distracted at the wheel

The latest ingenie survey revealed:
- 44% 62%
- 1 in 6 male drivers
- One third
- 18% 17%
The results collected from the survey suggest that the increasing range of apps and functionality available on mobile devices is contributing to young driver distraction – even mobile games, which take a high level of concentration are taking young people’s attention away from the roads.
King added, "At ingenie we’re doing our bit to prevent distraction – we won’t send driver feedback messages to your mobile if we know the ignition is on, and when our contact centre makes outbound calls, the first question they’ll ask is ‘are you driving?’"
