AAA REVEALED A STUDY THAT SHOWED OLDER DRIVERS ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE MORE DISTRACTED THAN YOUNGER DRIVERS — Did you know: taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chance of getting into an accident.

That is according to AAA, and with all the tech we have in our cars these days it is easy to get distracted.

The auto group says people between 55 and 75 are likely to get even more distracted.

During a study, older drivers took their eyes off the road about eight seconds longer than the people

between 21 and 36 years old.
