Drivers Spend A Fifth Of The Time Watching Where They Are Driving
That can’t be true!
Well, yes it can, and it is according to GeekWire.com.
The study says people spend a fifth of their time driving not looking where they should – the road.
What are they looking at?
- Mobile phones.
- Passing clouds.
- The radio.
- The hot gal or guy in the vehicle next to you.
- Whatever, just not the road!
Scientists hooked drivers up to eye-tracking technology and found that drivers take their eyes off the road every nine seconds.
That averages out to 18 percent of looking at something else while driving.
The study also found that it jumps to 22 percent of the time when a mobile phone or GPS comes into play.
The moral of the story?
Keep your eyes on the road…please!
