Data Says Men Drive Distracted More Often Than Women

According to data, men in Pennsylvania are more often distracted while driving than women.

The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts recently reported that citations for distracted driving increased 52 percent overall in Pennsylvania from 2014 to 2016.

In total, there were 12,201 texting while driving infractions across the state in 2016, and men accounted for 70 percent of drivers cited. This includes citations for sending, reading or writing a text-based message or email, and for wearing or using headphones or earphones while the car is in motion. Those caught texting while driving are responsible for a $50 fine plus court costs.

27 percent of drivers given citations were in their 30s. Only 6 percent were teenagers. Local police issued 58 percent of the tickets, and state police were responsible for the remainder. According to the office of the courts, the month of May had the most citations, which were handed out mostly between 8 a.m. and noon.
