This Is Dangerous Distracted Driving, And We All Might Be Doing It
Texting and using your phone is illegal in most states now and in Minnesota, so what is more dangerous and is not outlawed?
A new study claims that it’s more dangerous to daydream behind the wheel. What?
Daydreaming is still considered distracted driving. Distracted driving is any activity that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel or your mind off your primary task of driving safely.
Sure you aren't flipping out imagining George Clooney in the front seat or Kate Upton dancing on the hood of the car. Maybe you just have something on your mind from earlier in the day.
According to cafemom.com, your kids can distract and you can tell them to be quiet, you can ignore your phone, but if you have something on your mind you could be working it out in your head and the next thing you know the person in front of you stops, and you aren't ready.
According to NBCnews.com, they say you are five times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash because you were “lost in thought” than if you were distracted by something else.
