The Feb. 15 news article “Millennials eclipse teens as worst drivers on the road, AAA study finds” was problematic.
First, the headline and article identified the group studied as “millennials,” whose members are normally identified as those born between roughly 1982 and 1994. However, the age range given in the article was 19 to 24, meaning the study and article should have noted that some millennials, but not all, were implicated.
The study was based on answers to a questionnaire regarding driving habits — not driving enforcement numbers. It is possible then that drivers ages 19 through 24 were more willing to admit to driving infractions than those in other age groups, not necessarily that they committed more infractions than others.
