Drive Smarter & Safer: New Driving Habits Emerge as Americans Hit the Road This Summer, According to New Data from Cobra Electronics
Nationwide survey of 2,000 Americans point to increased anxiety over driving safety and preparedness as a state of "revenge travel" and "new normal" comes into play
CHICAGO, June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cobra Electronics, the leading designer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics including dash cams, radar detectors, CB radios and more, today released a nationwide study of American driving habits that have emerged post-pandemic. Coming at an inflection point of a "new normal", the findings point to a clear increase in road anxiety as more Americans feel the pandemic has spurred people into driving more unsafely. In tandem, American's still feel that need to travel – with road trips on the rise now more than ever.
"Like every other aspect of our lives, driving has changed significantly in the past two years – and with it has brought a clear need to be better prepared sharing the road with other vehicles," said Gail Babitt, CEO of Cedar Electronics (parent company of Cobra Electronics). "As we emerge from the empty roads at the beginning of the pandemic to the current 'revenge travel' we're seeing this summer, it's important for today's drivers to invest in the tools to feel safe and confident behind the wheel – whether it's a dash cam, jump starter, or anything else for those 'just in case moments."
The findings came from a nationwide survey of 2,000 Americans, independent from Cobra Electronics customer base, conducted in June 2021. Among the study's highlights:
