It's dangerous to allow a barely trained ape to operate a motor vehicle in the first place.

The funniest part of "Distracted Driving" laws is that there is no other kind of driving involving humans. I've started attempting mindfulness meditation recently, and I've discovered humans are absurdly bad at focusing their attention. Even keeping my thoughts focused on a single thing for 5-10 seconds is a Herculean task.

Thank the internet for that. (seriously.)

Is It Dangerous To Talk To A Camera While Driving?

Is this a trick question?

Of course doing anything other than driving with 100% focus is going to increase the risk of a crash. But I'd guess talking with a camera going is not going to be any different than talking to someone that is in the car with you.

I disagree.
The passenger also has attention on the road & will unlike a camera exclaim "keep your eyes on the road you f*%king dumb sh%t before you kill us both" should things get hairy.

Anything you do other than actually focusing on driving is a distraction and therefore dangerous. But God forbid 99% of the fucking drivers these days have to take some fucking responsibility for the 4000lbs speeding lethal object they're operating.

It's been proven in study after study that anything you can do to distract yourself from the tedium of driving just improves your road skillz. I recommend making Martini's (Shaken, not stirred) while using your ipad to refinance your mortgage.

Video was good.

I'm worried I no longer have a mortgage would viewing porn be an acceptable replacement?
