(CNN) -- Teen girls are far more likely than boys to engage in dangerous and distracted driving behavior.

A new study finds that the overwhelming majority of teen girls change music on car stereos and play loud music while driving.

Teens think that drunken driving, reading text messages and eating while driving are the biggest distractions for drivers their age.

83% of teen girls say having more than one passenger in the vehicle caused them to lose focus on the road.

On a positive note, 95% of teenage boys and girls are aware that drinking and driving is very dangerous.
