Drivers in the gig economy skew younger, with 38 percent of the workforce aged 18 to 34. These jobs are more likely a side gig, as 55 percent of workers also maintain a full-time job. These two factors are a dangerous combination, elevating risk for companies like yours as this age group has the highest rate of distracted driving. In fact, drivers aged 20 to 29 account for 28 percent of fatal distracted driving crashes and have the highest rate of fatal crashes due to cell phone usage.
