Poll: Drivers Distracted By Distracted Drivers

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:12 PM CDT

By now, you know we're in the middle of a year-long campaign to eliminate texting as a driver distraction.  But when we recently asked you to point out the drivers distractions that you spotted... Well you pointed at each other.


Here are some of the responses from our Facebook page to the question, “What distracts you while driving?”:


Leah: “Distracted drivers.”


Peggy: “People who don't know how to drive period!"


Cathy: "tailgaters - I hate when people tailgate .... Oh yeah also people who don't use turning signals...."


What else have people noticed "other drivers" distracted by behind the wheel?  Eating, reading, putting on makeup and talking on or texting on their cell phone or tablet.  And there’s one problem that shows up primarily on long road trips and especially at night:  Have you ever found yourself watching the movie playing in the car ahead of you?  “Finding Nemo” seems to be a popular choice for the backseat crowd.


These are all distractions we need to get rid of to focus on the task at hand.  Go to our http://facebook.com/keyetv if you want to add to the list.
