Most Common Activities We Do While Driving [POLL]
I think everyone is guilty of singing at the top of their lungs while driving, but a recent survey said people also text and watch movies? What?
The DMEautomotive recently released a survey of the top things that people do while driving. The top 5 are:
Singing out loud (56%) Talking on the phone (50%) Eating (50%) Reading text messages (26%) Sending text messages (20%)
While the thought of texting while driving is a scary one. Looks like people tend to do other pretty scary things! Working on a computer while driving? Shaving? Watching a movie? OMG!
According to PRNewswire:
“It’s not surprising that singing out loud tops our list, but it’s deeply disturbing to see how much multiscreen, multi-tasking is going on in cars: people texting, reading emails and the paper, and watching TV. And how a smaller, but considerable, percentage (5-7%) are treating their cars as an extension of their home/bathroom by shaving, brushing or flossing their teeth, putting on makeup or deodorant and changing their clothes while driving,” said Dr. Mary Sheridan, Manager of Research and Analytics at DMEa.
