According to a study conducted for PC mobile, mobile manners continue to slip in Canada.
The study found that the way Canadians are using their smartphones are moving into an area which is unacceptable and potentially dangerous. Areas of interest include texting while driving or using your smartphone while in the bathroom.
Here is a list of the three most concerning ways Canadians use their smartphones:
– 22% of Canadians have texted while driving (20% made a phone call without using hands-free technology)
– 30% of Canadians talk or text while walking
– 37% if Canadians have used their smartphones while they are in the bathroom.
About two out of every 3 people that participated in the study conducted for PC mobile feel that mobile etiquette in Canada is getting worse.
Chief Family Advisor for PC Kathy Buckworth said:
“Our children follow our lead, so by engaging in bad and potentially dangerous mobile behaviour, we are telling them one thing and showing them another. As we get ready to send our kids back to school with the latest mobile devices, the best way to stop them from adopting these annoying habits is to educate them about this topic, and most importantly, to lead by example.”
