Driving with your eyes closed...

The last time I drove from Phoenix to San Diego I drove over 15 miles with my eyes closed....

How many miles will you drive this weekend with your eyes closed?
Check it out. Driving With Your Eyes Closed


Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend.

I alternate blinks between my eyes to avoid this problem.

I look funny doing it, but IMO, it's worth it.

Correct arithmetic, wrong mathematics, absurd conclusion.

By this rationale, taking your eyes off the road long enough to look at the speedometer should be a moving violation and looking at a multi-parameter scan gauge should be a B felony.

Distracted/fatigued driving is a major problem.

But nonsense like this doesn't help people understand the real problem and do something about it.

If there were a device that could prevent this "problem", maybe the DOT should require it.

1986 Isuzu P'up, 177,673.8 miles.
- Hella headlights (highly recommended)
- DOT C-2 back end (also recommended)
- R-12 air conditioner converted to R-406a. Saved ozone and money
- 4.1:1 final drive converted to 3.4:1. Quieter, better mileage but it's a good thing I live in the flat Midwest.
- 9/22/2007, age 21: Still running well when reluctantly sent away for reincarnation, due to body & frame rust.
- Never did get around to converting it to french-fry oil, which is why I originally stumbled upon this site.

And years ago when I drove a repair vehicle, I would listen to classical music as I drove between business' to keep calm.
