Teenage girls are more likely than boys to use electronic devices while driving, according to a new survey released Monday by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

The survey took an in-depth look at what teens are doing behind the wheel. While cellphones played a major role in distractions, the study found they are not the only culprit.

It also showed that teen boys were twice as likely as girls to turn around in their seat and engage in horseplay while driving.
