A study released Wednesday by EverQuote says 92 percent of U.S. drivers with cellphones have used them while moving in a car in the past 30 days, and Florida ranks No. 2 for the nation’s worst score.


The study said drivers in Southern states use their phone the most. Nearly half of all trips (41 percent) that Southern drivers logged included phone use while they were behind the wheel.

Overall, drivers in the U.S. used their phone more than two out of every five (38 percent) trips taken in 2016.

EverQuote found that Louisiana drivers used their phone the most of any state.

Vermont drivers used their phone the least followed by Montana and Oregon.
