Daydreaming CAN Be Fatal….
In the Old Testament--there is a verse that says there is a time for everything. Well....maybe NOT quite everything. There is a time and a place for daydreaming … and it’s not behind the wheel of a car.
New research shows that you are five times more likely to be involved in a fatal car crash from daydreaming than being distracted by random electronic devices.
Apparently 62 percent of 65,000 lost to fatal car accidents were the result of being “lost in thought.”
And while that’s bad, other types of distraction are bad too, such as:
Kids or other vehicle occupants
Reaching for an object elsewhere in the car
Eating or drinking (NBC)
