Drive dreaming … A new study says that drivers spend about 70% of their time daydreaming instead of paying attention to what’s going on around them. I call this time traveling.
The researchers are unable to confirm whether mind wandering is hazardous, but they note that lack of driver awareness is a key risk factor for motor vehicle accidents.
Try to be more attentive and in tune with your surroundings. Also, look twice for motorcyclists. As one myself, I cannot tell you how many times I see people more focused on their phone while driving at 70+mph than driving.
