Teens who engage in distracted and dangerous driving most likely learned their bad driving skills from their parents.

That's the finding of a study where the majority of more than 1,700 teens surveyed admitted to making poor decisions while behind the wheel.

Nine out of ten said they talked on their cell phone while driving.

And a majority of teen respondents said their parents practiced 'Do as i say, not as i do' rules when it came to driving.
