Be mindful, oh foolish one behind the wheel
Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
Quote is via Chapter 3 of Tom Vanderbilt‘s Traffic: Why we drive the way we do (and what it says about us).
This chapter, How our eyes and minds betray us on the road, entertains the world of cognitive limitations ALL of us have when driving.
An overall theme of Traffic is that none of us are as good as driver’s as we think we are; we’re mostly lucky. And, it is made worse by kissing pretty girls (or talking to them on the cell phone) while driving.
Let’s be careful out there.
