I have written multiple articles about various driver distractions, mostly talking on the phone and texting.  Many of you are aware of, and maybe even engaged in, various other driver distractions such as eating, changing the radio, putting on make-up and shaving, but have you ever seen someone clean their car while driving?  I am not joking.  One of my employees was driving with her husband this Labor Day weekend when they witnessed a man almost cause an accident while dusting the inside of his car with a long-handled duster.  Fortunately, the man turned his attention back to driving moments before causing a rear-end collision.

How many times must we hear that taking your eyes, hands, and mind off the road for any reason is reckless and negligent behavior?  Please do not put yourself and others at risk. Save the cleaning, texting, talking, eating, and shaving for another time. Multi-tasking is not meant for our roads.  The more we educate the better chance we all have to improving our roadways.
