More drivers surfing internet behind the wheel

Posted: Updated:

The number of Americans who are texting while driving may not be rising as much.

But now there's new worry about driving with smart phones – web surfing behind the wheel.

USA Today reports almost one in four drivers admit using their mobile devices to get on the internet.

The percentage of drivers who go online almost doubled from 13 percent in 2009 to 24 percent this year.

The study is from State Farm, which started asking drivers about surfing the internet in 2009.
