Researchers say teens who text while driving are also likely to do other risky things.
The study finds nearly half of 16-year-olds have texted or emailed while driving at least once in the last month. About one in every four teens admits texting or emailing while driving every day.
And researchers found that kids who do text while driving are also more likely to take other chances behind the wheel, like not buckling up or driving after drinking.
That study appeared in the journal Pediatrics.
