RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — A new report from AAA-Mid-Atlantic has uncovered some baffling information about distracted driving on Interstate 95.

The survey finds that  nearly 94 percent of frequent I-95 drivers in northern Virginia have seen someone driving distracted or dangerously.

Additionally, a little more than half of drivers admitted to using their phones behind the wheel.

The survey included more than 900 people who go through the express lanes construction zone corridor.

AAA conducted the survey ahead of its campaign focused on getting drivers to pay more attention when they see construction workers on the interstate.
