5. Shopping while driving is a trend that 39 percent of Americans admitted to doing according to a new Harris Poll. The data comes from a study on distracted driving that found people browsed, checked order status, looked for availability in-store, and also looked for deals and coupons. “There might be flash sales going on or you’re driving home from work, and when you’re depleted, you don’t have as much self-control and you don’t resist the temptation,” says a customer insight expert from the Yale School of Management. The study also found 33 percent checked out and paid for items in their carts while driving. Men were more likely to admit shopping while driving than women, and people over 55 do it three times less frequently than 18- to 54-year-olds. - FAST COMPANY
