Not to mention, most people would crap themselves if they knew the things we have to do behind the wheel in a combat zone. We're a lot more distracted than your average driver in hairy situations.
Guess what I'm saying is it's not the distractions, it's the attitude of the driver. And too many people have complacent attitudes. And like I said, it's only going to get worse the more driver "assists" they put in vehicles.
What I can't stand is the people that drive by their GPS and don't have a clue what's around them! I've see people go from the Passing Lane on a 4 Lane Highway to the Exit Ramp all the time on my way to work. This morning I saw a PT Cruiser turn into the side of a Pick-up Truck cuz that was her exit.
