The Most Incredible Article About Driving You'll Ever Read

November 15, 2021



A study by the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that drivers are less likely to become distracted by a cell phone when they're driving than, say when they're watching television. That may sound like a bad thing, but the implications for our roads are far-reaching.

The cell phone is the very thing that makes it such a powerful tool. If we used it

every time we were on a drive, you may even think that if we're driving down the highway, we're probably distracted. This is because a cell phone interrupts our normal drive and we lose focus and are less likely to be able to read a map or plan a route. But that's not the case.

The cell phone is so ubiquitous that it is not only used by all sorts of people all the time. It is becoming commonplace, and now in some countries, it is almost as routine as driving. It is used for everything from calling a friend to ordering pizza, and even to taking a photo of the car you are driving. It is a tool that is so common that we don't even think about it.

We use our cell phones as a way of life and it is a tool that is so common that we don't even think about it.


This is why so many of us are so addicted to them.

I know this is not the most popular article but it is the most ridiculous one I have ever read, so I am going to share it, even though it is only just out. It is by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. A few years ago, in the middle of a particularly cold winter, the DMV asked all their drivers to take a drive.

They said they wanted to show us what driving was like without actually being able to get behind the wheel. So the DMV got together a team of three (one to drive, one to watch the other two drivers, and one to make sure they could read their texts). They drove a fleet of vintage cars and put a GPS into each one that tracked their position. They started out in a garage, but instead of going around it, they went around a corner about a block and a half away.
