Forget public speaking, new study says dangerous drivers are top fear

The Thing Millennials Fear More Than Public Speaking.

Many people have a fear of something, but over the years, the top spot has changed. Americans' number-one fear used to be public speaking.

But, according to one new study, these days, millennials are most of afraid of dangerous drivers.

Eighty-eight percent say too many people behind the wheel are distracted. And, when you mix in snowy or icy roads, drivers not knowing where they're going, or new technology, things could get dangerous.

Other fears topping the list? Death, spiders, snakes, ghosts and strangers.
