5 Things You Must Avoid during Driving
0

Driving is important part of our daily life,But Safe driving must be practiced. Multitasking can cause serious accidents and many other health hazards not only to you but also to the other people present on the road. Most of us Avoid this and do a lot of things while driving. These are the some common things which we must avoid while driving :

5. Multitasking

I once saw a man driving down the road with a burger in one hand and a soda in the other driving with his elbows. Just no! It’s not a great idea to eat on the freeway in the first place, but one thing at a time, man. If you are driving a standard and need to shift, that’s all you get to do. The What a burger will wait.

4. Talking on the phone if…

…you don’t have a hands-free device and/or your brain cannot process talking and driving. It never fails that when someone cuts me off in traffic or makes some crazy turn across two lanes and I pass him, he’s got a phone in one hand. Some people have the ability to process multiple complex tasks. Others (let’s call them “most”) do not. If you are going to talk while driving, do NOT do it without headphones or one of those douchey earpieces. Keep those hands at ten and two, my friend.

3. Applying makeup

Ladies, seriously. I get that, in your rush to get out of the house, you might need to preserve a few things for later, but how can something like this EVER be a good idea? In case you thought that wasn’t a rhetorical question, it can’t. Not long ago, I saw a woman on the freeway drifting into other lanes while trying to put on mascara in her rear view mirror. Never mind the other drivers; to quote your mom, “YOU’LL PUT AN EYE OUT!”

2. Reading

The number of times I have witnessed people reading books or the newspaper while driving is staggering. Now, with cell phones and tablets that have 3G or 4G wireless access, I’m almost surprised if I pull up beside a car and they aren’t reading. I know the commute in traffic gets boring and maybe if you are dead stopped at an accident, you can take a peek at a traffic app, but keep your reading confined to the normal places: on your computer at work, in an easy chair or in the bathroom.

1. Texting/Tweeting/Facebooking

Every single time I see someone drifting into another lane, I assume that person is typing away on a cell phone. I’m almost always right. This is one of the dumbest things you can do while sitting behind the wheel of a two-ton piece of metal that is hurtling down a highway at 70 miles per hour. Lots of people do it. I’ve done it in the past and I was an asshole. Stop before you kill something other than your dignity.
