Driving in general is likely the most dangerous thing many people do in their lives. It has become a dicey affair to mix it up with all of the no driving idiots who are on the road at any given time, and being on the road for hours at a time only increases the likelihood that something bad is going to happen. One of the problems with many people is they look at driving as a time when they can just chill and communicate with others, catch up with emails, stream the show they missed last night, etc.
Actual safe, defensive driving involves some work and staying focused on the task at hand is sometimes difficult for anyone. Unfortunately, we can't treat driving as a time to relax and simply get where we're going. The idiots have taken care of that for us.

My wife discovering I bought a new gun without tellling her a week or so back was pretty dangerous.

There are those who would scold you for telling her. Just follow the "need to know" rules and put her in that "no need to know" group.

Yeah, I thought that was common knowledge. Anyone married for more than a couple of years should already have that down, right?

Because even IF it blows over in a month or so...they NEVER forget.

So you look down for one second when your phone goes off and possibly kill somebody.

I have done it- im sure most of us have at least checked a notification on the cellphone behind the wheel. Innocent right? Not the same as texting and driving? That will get you killed, and possibly others too. Driving an 18 wheeler has been an eye opener for me. 99 percent of the time when you see dumbass behavior on the road it is somebody on the phone. You can see right down in the vehicle from a big truck.

Very recently I tried fasting from the phone and internet completely, outside if work and family responsibilities. Too much time on the phone changes you and effects the family. I have spent way too much time on it. We practically worship these little devices. Instant access entertainment.


Sad thing is that I see just as many truck drivers on their damn phones as I do everyone else. Way more than once in just the past year I've had to put it in the ditch to avoid being ran over by an 18 wheeler when traffic was stopping ahead. Twice the car in front of me has been hit. Luckily nothing serious yet. Maybe I'm a magnet for them - but I see it often, especially on highway 80.
