Washington: Texting, eating and indulging in sexual acts are among the top activities that people do while driving.

According to a scientific survey commissioned by hands-free headset maker Jabra, 28 percent of respondents in six countries including the United States say that they’ve texted behind the wheel.

Seventy percent of respondents said that they eat or drink regularly, and 35 percent admit to getting dressed or undressed.

In fact 29 percent have kissed while driving and more than half that, fully 15 percent, have engaged in sexual intercourse or another sexual act.

Freshening up by styling hair or applying makeup is done by 23 percent and 13 percent of those surveyed, reports Fox News.

Less people read actual newspapers and magazines than e-mails, but the numbers are still high, 10 percent and 12 percent, respectively.

But, only 5 percent of drivers sneak in a video game while driving.

And 63 percent of respondents have yelled at other drivers while commuting.
