"Things We Shouldn't do while driving"

We think we're super human being that can do all kinds of feats, especially when we're driving our car. Whenever we get int he car, we should do all the necessary things that need to done; before we ever start the engine. These things consist of adjusting the mirrors, seats, and set belts. It's very important  not to be active in not other activity but driving safely; when we're on the highway. Please take the necessary precautions for our safety and the safety of the others drivers as well

Here are some major tips to help us stay safe and keep from being involved in an accident.  These things we should never do while driving.

1.Never try adjusting your rear view mirror while driving.

2.Never try to adjust your drivers seat while driving.

3.Never try to text on your cell phone while driving.

4.Never apply make up while you're driving.

5. Never talk on the phone, unless it 's an emergency, otherwise your phone should be off, while driving.

6.Never try to look into the back seat at the kids while you're driving down the highway.

7.Never drive without your seat belt being in use.

8. Never try to pick up something that you drop to the floor of your car.

9.Never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

10.Never drive while taking debilitating medication.

      Wouldn't it be nice if people used a little bit of common sense - or at least consideration for others? Sigh!

      I was riding with a driver whose child was acting up in the back seat and she thought it important enough to turn around and rant and rave at him. All this while making a left turn. Fortunately, I didn't take my eyes off the road because we almost rear ended someone. I'm beginning to think most people shouldn't be behind the wheel.

      Thanks for these reminders!

      Safety is important and your hub will serve to remind others about any bad habits that may have crept in over time. Me and a friend were talking about this same subject the other day and we both said that a bad thing to do when driving is texting as it requires a great deal of concerntration and will involve taking your eyes off the road to do it. I hope your hub helps others to stay safe.

      Uh, Oh! I've done over half of these things while driving. Isn't funny though, when taking our driving test and preparing for getting our drivers license, we are taught not to do most of these things, but when we start getting the hang of driving, we tend to forget them. I think we become so accustomed to driving, that we take these small (although potentially dangerous) things for granted. Thank you for the vital reminders.
