Forty years later, we have a more prevalent distraction, and that is the cell phone. People are funny creatures. I hear them complain all the time about how crazy people are driving yet not a week goes by that a client of mine gets in an accident where one of them was not paying attention, (that means distracted).
So put down the cell phones. Watch the road in front and use the mirror to avoid the guy coming behind you who thinks he is in a NASCAR race. Then the worst thing that will happen to you is you will be late getting to your destination because Mr. NASCAR collided with guy who was texting.
