(WKBW/ABC) More trouble linked to texting. A new study says not only is it dangerous to text while driving, it may also cause teens to engage in "risky behaviors."
A new study says that "hyper-texting" teens are more likely to have had sex or used alcohol or drugs than teens who aren't excessive texters.
"Hyper-texters" are described in the study as teens who text more than 120 times a day.
The study also found that "hyper-networkers" -- teens who spend greater than 3 hours a day on social networking sites -- have a greater likelihood of being involved in risky behaviors including fighting and drinking alcohol.
