We ALL know we're not supposed to text and drive, but phone addiction is a real thing.

According to a new study, we use our phones pretty much every time we're in the car.

The study looked at 3.1 million drivers and found they used their phones during 88% of their drives. So, in all honesty, we use our phone nine out of every 10 trips behind the wheel. Doing some math over here shows that people in the United States take 600 million drives every day where they're poking around on their phones.

During an hour in the car, the average person is looking at their phone for 3 1/2 minutes.  That's 3 1/2 minutes of not watching the road!
