Pay attention while driving!

I know this doesn’t have anything to do with equestrian homes or local activities but I just had to share my experience while coming home from camping this past weekend.

My husband was driving and I was “enjoying” the scenery, well almost. We could believe how many people were doing other things while driving. My husband had to blow the horn, more than once, at people who were drifting over in our lane because they were doing something else.

I saw people eating, texting, talking on the phone and one guy almost ran into the side of us while taking medicine with both hands off the wheel. What is up with people these days that they can’t wait until they are not driving to do all these distracting things?

I have to admit I do use my cell phone while I am driving, but I use voice dial and a hands free device. I have had times in the past when I took my eyes off the road “for a minute” only to get startled when I looked back up. I really wish people would “hang up and drive” when they are behind the wheel!
