THE BRONX - A new survey on texting behind the wheel says the worst offenders might be the least likely of drivers: parents.

According to a survey conducted by AT&T, 49 percent of adult commuters admitted to texting while driving, compared to 43 percent of teenagers. Of those adults, 98 percent said they know it's unsafe and 40 percent admit that it's a habit.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says that more than nine people are killed as a result of distracted driving each day. The issue has sparked national campaigns against texting and driving, including one called "It Can Wait."
