Does your mind ever wander off while you are trying to drive? Well, that is super dangerous.
A new study has actually shown that day dreaming and driving is actually about 5 times as dangerous as texting while driving. This is because you are much more likely to continue to focus on the road while you are texting. While you day dream you are thinking about only the day dream and you are not really thinking about the road.
About 60% of all accidents were caused by a driver who said they just lost train of thought while driving. Only about 10% were caused by a driver using their cell phone during their commute.
