Distractions while driving!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Checkmate 260532

Distractions while driving, what do you think about?  Everyone immediately goes to cell phones, which are bad, but that is certainly not the end of the list!   Just for fun, I typed in distractions which driving into adobe images.  Of course Google would have been a wealth of information on this source, but I wanted to take a different avenue.  Over 16,000 images popped up.  Yes, cell phone use was at the top of the list, but so much more! 

1. Having your pet on your lap, (there are pet seat belts)

2. Putting make-up on

3. Reading newspaper!  (Really)?

4. Multi-tasking (leave that for the office)

5. Eating, this one is very popular.

6.  Cell phone!!!!

7.  Kids!

8.  Radio

9. Rubber-necking

10. Loose items in the car, trying to protect them.

Crazy, right?  So much we are responsible for while we are driving around in a 2000lb vehicle.  Think about that next time you can't wait to get to the office to check out that article in the newspaper.

Hello Cindy: over the years I have seen the distractions on your list even observed a guy shaving.

Hi Cindy- since they've done studies that show that we can't multi-task, anything we do that is other than thinking about driving is a distraction.

There is a guy who plays trumpet in the National Opera Orchestra.  He lives in rural Virginia and when he drives into Kennedy Center, he occassionally practices his trumpet on the way to work.  It seems that it's as distracting to fellow drivers as it is to him!

I going to admit that I was once running late for an appointment and brushed my teeth while driving. The nerve of me, but I made it on time by shaving off two minutes.

I've seen all of these while on the road. Once, I was driving with a puppy in the back and somehow he got into the front seat. I learned how distracting that can be too!

Of course, using a cell phone while driving is against the law in California. It does not stop some people from doing so.
