A NEW SURVEY carried out by Ipsos Mori for Aviva has found that Irish drivers are among the worst in Europe when it comes to using their phones while driving.

Over a quarter of the Irish drivers polled admitted to sending texts while driving, and 15% said that they check or post to social media when behind the wheel.

A massive 45% of Irish drivers meanwhile said that take calls while driving without using a hands-free kit.

But do these figures apply to you?
