Maybe finding that right song is distracting you from driving

A survey found that fiddling with the radio was the most common distractor during driving. It also found that young men, those who drive often and extroverted people are more prone to distraction than others.


The researchers surveyed a large group of people in Norway for the study. Other results from the study: Those who felt that it was okay to be distracted while driving were also the ones who would report the same while those, particularly elder women, who thought that they can control their distracted behavior, were less likely to report. And the researchers believe that people need to come up with their own plans to focus while driving, rather than a common strategy.
