jenrgw Is Personal Grooming in the Car Really That Big a Problem?

It seems that it is – at least in California.  A group of California students, through a group known as California Friday Night Live Partnership, recently studied the behavior of drivers through pre-established checkpoints.  In just one hour, the students documented more than 6,700 distracted drivers

Not surprisingly, large numbers of drivers were distracted by eating, drinking, hand held cell phones and texting or emailing while driving.

What was more surprising was that, in just one hour, hundreds of motorists were seen grooming themselves while driving.  Grooming includes activities such as shaving, hair styling, applying make-up and brushing teeth, for example.

It is important for motorists to know that these activities are dangerous when performed behind the wheel and are every bit as distracting as using a cell phone while driving.

Have you ever seen someone grooming themselves and driving? What were they doing? Leave a comment and let us know!
