The bad driving habits of parents are rubbing off on their kids, according to a new report from Liberty Mutual Insurance. And they can have dire consequences. In addition to speeding, texting and talking on the phone, about 9 percent of parents surveyed by the insurer admitted to driving under the influence of marijuana, and 8 percent said they have driven while intoxicated. Teens admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana while driving at the same rates as the parents.
