The motor risk management strategies of many companies could be being plunged into danger due to mobile and smartphone usage by young drivers.

A study from ingenie found that 58 per cent of drivers between 17 and 25 agree the use of smartphones is causing distractions at the wheel, creating a casualty waiting to happen.

The survey of over 1,000 young drivers found that more than 40 per cent admitted to answering phones while driving, without a hands-free kit, while one-in-six male drivers had crashed due to mobile phone usage at the wheel.

Chief executive officer Richard King said that he felt the "growth of social media and mobile is creating a new breed of in-car distraction".

A third of drivers under 25 who used social media site Facebook on their phone, admitted that they used it whilst driving.
