US teens are moking and fighting less, but texting while driving more

A new youth risk report from CDC shows that teens in the USA are smoking and fighting less, but a whopping 41% who owned a car admitted to texting or emailing whilst driving. The survey found some risky behaviours, such as teen sex, have dropped - and the rate of smoking is now 15.7%: the rate of fighting - teens who had been in a fight -  has dropped from 42% in 1991 to 23%  now: 34% of teens are sexually active, again down,  but condom use has dropped.
