Have you ever found yourself wondering how you got somewhere? I find that I’ve driven back and forth to my place of employment so many times that sometimes I wonder just how I got there– or have trouble trying to remember the route I took!
Believe it or not, it’s a common occurrence to find oneself thinking or concentrating on other things besides the road ahead:
Research from car insurer More Than found one in five drivers admit to concentrating behind the wheel less than 75 percent of the time, with 1.2 million thinking mostly about sex.
And sex wasn’t the only non-traffic thoughts motorists have. For 3.2 million drivers work was the main focus and for 2 million more it was family issues that dominated.
So, next time you’re out for a drive, try to pay attention to what’s going on in front and around you instead of trying to plan that next big meal or trying to get the toy little Susie just dropped on the floor.
