April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and this year, a new study ranked Virginia as the worst state for texting and driving.
"I don't text and drive, I check when I get a text message. I say 'Oh there's a text message' but I shouldn't because when you look down, something can happen right in that second," said Northern Virginia resident Ally Hill.
Every April, Zendrive analyzes the largest dataset of how people drive. In 2019, Zendrive found that Virginia drivers use their phone an average of 9 percent of the time, which is a 3 percent increase from last year.
