Thoughts and advice from a motorists magazine ...

 

Road signs and lights need to be placed on the floor to reduce injuries as that is where ‘zombie pedestrians’ are looking, says a government adviser. Scientists in Germany have conducted a new investigation into the dangers of distractions to motorists – and given a damning verdict for older motorists. Roughly eight in ten drivers aged 65 to 75 are likely to lose control of their car and veer off the road if they attempt to multitask at the wheel, the study found.

Separate research also uncovered the most common types of distractions. Among the top twenty reasons why drivers have taken their eyes off the road were stroking pets and attempting to perform sex acts on partners.
