Millennials admitted to texting while driving, running red lights, and speeding during the previous month, according to the report. Some of the drivers within the age group also believe their dangerous driving is acceptable, the survey says. The number of traffic deaths continue to rise, jumping by 7 percent from 2014 to 2015.
