Cell phones are of concern when it comes to texting and driving.

A new national survey dispels the notion that teen drivers text more than adults. According to a AAA report, teens text and drive less often than adults.

Of the more than 2,000 teens surveyed, 58% of those aged 16 to 18 acknowledged using their cell phones while driving and 20% said they used it fairly often.

However, 82% of drivers ages 25-39 say they text and drive.

The only drivers reporting less cell phone usage while driving were those 60 and older.
