In a survey conducted last week, this column uncovered the truth about iPhone users; they make the worst drivers.

The survey was conducted on two separate occasions on the same stretch of road.

80 per cent of those who took their eyes off the road to look at their smartphone were iPhone owners.

The other one (20 per cent) looked like a Blackberry user. You know the type.
