BAD DRIVERS “11 THINGS THAT MAKE YOU A BAD DRIVER” ARE YOU ONE OF THESE BAD DRIVERS? LIBRAS ARE WORST DRIVERS?

By Kathy Benjamin

You might have passed your driving test with flying colors and never text while driving, but it turns out there are a lot more bizarre things that can affect how dangerous you are on the road.

1. Singing

Music is important when you are driving. You’d be hard pressed to find a car that didn’t at least come with a basic radio and lots of people will spend thousands of dollars making sure they have the best aftermarket stereo systems available. But listening to music contributes to hundreds of car accidents every year. People fiddling with the radio will look away from the road. Even the type of music you listen to can affect your driving; high tempo music, like techno, makes you twice as likely to go through a red light, for instance. But possibly the worst thing to do is sing along to your favorite tunes. Even when singing a song you know by heart, your brain has to work to remember the melody and the words. This increases the workload on your brain and in turn makes it harder to react to dangerous situations when driving. So next time you are out for a drive, maybe leave the ballads to Beyoncé and concentrate on the road.

2. Having a Cold

Your health can have an obvious effect on how well you drive. After all, if you aren’t getting enough sleep, or are in chronic pain, or seriously ill, you are going to react slower to danger. But it doesn’t have to be some major health issue that makes you a worse driver. A 2012 study found that even a slight cold is enough to make driving a car more dangerous. In a driver simulation, researchers found that people with a cold are more easily distracted while driving, have slower reaction times and are more likely to follow the car in front too closely. So next time your boss says that a cold isn’t a good enough reason to miss work, tell her you are just being a responsible driver by staying home.

3. Driving the Same Route All the Time

Getting complacent is one of the worst things you can do if you hope to make it to the end of your drive alive. When completing familiar tasks our brain stops trying as hard, and according to a 2010 study, this includes when we are driving a route we know by heart. So you are actually more likely to do something stupid and get in an accident on the way to work than you are taking a road trip. When following a new route your brain stays engaged and allows you to react to a child stepping into the road or a car braking suddenly.

4. Billboards

A racy billboard for Wonderbra was once removed from Britain’s roadways when the number of car accidents around it went up. But it’s not just bra-clad supermodels that directly affect how well you drive. The advertisements on the side of highways are all fighting to get your attention, and you will speed up or slow down according to what kind emotion they evoke in you. A study found that billboards that reference money, fame, or sex will make a driver speed up. Negative emotions, triggered by billboard reminders of abuse, prison, or war, caused drivers to slow down. But they were also more likely to drift out of their lane after seeing one, meaning there is really no way to win when advertisers are fighting with traffic for your attention.

5. Being a Libra

Insurance companies don’t really take your star sign into consideration when deciding what to charge you for coverage. So when one company did a study to find out what zodiac sign had the worst drivers, it started as a joke—but the results indicated an overwhelming pattern. Libras get in the most accidents by far, followed by Aquarius and Aries. But Pisces receive the most tickets. Overall, Geminis win safest drivers, with the least accidents and tickets. So next time you hop in a cab be sure to ask the driver his sign.

6. Living in D.C.

According to a huge study by Allstate, the average American gets in a car accident once every 10 years. But where you live can drastically change your collision frequency. Obviously, the bigger the city you live in the more cars, and the greater the chance of getting in an accident. But while San Francisco (6.4 years between accidents), Philadelphia (6.2), and Baltimore (5.3) all have worse odds than average, no one comes close to Washington, D.C., where stressed-out politicians can expect to get in a wreck every 4.8 years. On the other hand, the safest large city is Phoenix (10.2) and the most driver-conscientious small city is Sioux Falls (13.8.)

7. Road Signs

When a small town in the Netherlands got rid of many of their road signs, their traffic deaths plummeted. Not what you’d expect, we know. But it seems that when we have traffic signs directing us where to go, drivers tend to pay less attention to what is actually happening on the road. The signs make us feel safer, which makes us more complacent drivers. When there are fewer road signs and you have to concentrate more on where you are going, you also avoid colliding with another car. Now more towns are considering removing some of their own signs

8. Being a Lawyer

If you get sued over a car accident, there is a good chance you could represent yourself.  A 2010 study by an insurance company found that a shocking 44 percent of lawyers who applied for car insurance admitted to being in at least one previous accident. Other groups that made the top ten were financial professionals (#2), nurses (#10), and, for some reason, dog groomers (#6.) On the other end of the scale were homemakers, who got the least speeding tickets and had the least accidents, which is weird considering this next entry.

9. Having Kids

In March, an Australian research team came to the conclusion that almost nothing is more distracting while driving than having children along for the ride. During a 16-minute car journey, parents will take their eyes off the road for an average of 3 minutes and 22 seconds to deal with their kids. Many also adjust their rearview mirror not to see the cars behind them, but the children in the back seat. And while many states have banned using cell phones in the car, there can’t do much about people driving with kids, which this study found was 12 times more distracting than taking a phone call.

10. Daydreaming

Even if you are driving alone in the car, down a deserted stretch of road with no billboards, not using your cell phone and with the radio off, there is still a chance that you will crash into something. That’s because you can’t stop your brain. When 65,000 people were asked what the cause of their car accident was, a surprisingly large number of them said daydreaming. Even if you try to concentrate on the road 100 percent of the time, there is a very good chance you will find your mind wandering. Suddenly, you’re a mile down the road and you don’t even remember how you got there. And our short attention span leads to many accidents every year.

11. Gas Prices

The cost of gas has been all over the place in the last decade, so in 2008 Congress decided to find out how those prices were affecting how well people drive (you can see a PDF of the study here). It turns out, while we all complain about higher gas prices, those $4 gallons could be keeping you alive. First there is just the fact that when gas costs a lot people drive less, and the less cars on the road, the safer you are. But the study also found that people tend to drive safer when gas prices are up, possibly because they are trying to conserve as much as possible. The number of people who speed – especially on the highway – drops as gas prices increase. But the opposite is also true; as gas becomes cheaper more cars are on the road and people start driving a bit crazy again. So while you might hate filling up when gas prices are high, remember it could be saving you paying for a new car or a trip to the emergency room.

XTRA! XTRA! “OH HAPPY DAY” “He taught me how to fight and Pray”!!! :)

XTRA! XTRA! “Oh! Happy Day” Sunday one of my favorite days out of the week. So Blessed to see another Sunday. Had my time spent with God in Praying and reading my bible. I told myself I need to read the Bible from the Beginning to the End so, I can learn about God on my own and not depend on others to deliver his message. That way I am a step ahead in church and following along. Ha! ha! Ha! Use to be all over the Bible and didn’t know where to turn to in the Bible but I have gotten better. Thank you Jesus I know I am going to have a Blessed Week. Hope all of you on FB will have one also. Feeling blessed and happy. ***Dj Smooth   www. corchurch.org Pastor Mark Whitlock and Pastor Mia Whitlock

SO YOU BEAT MY ? NOW WHAT? GULITY AS CHARGED. CASE CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MR. RICE SAY WHAT?

Wow!  The reason why this is such a special case is because anytime you strike anyone with that force then, it should be addressed as a crime has just been committed.  Women not hitting men or visa versa a women getting hit by a man.  She could have lost her life when he hit her so hard that her head hit the rail and she was knocked out.  I am not in her shoes but her relationship is unhealthy if there is verbal and physical abuse.  Someone can get killed.  He had a second 2 make a choice 2 not throw a punch that might have not injured her for life or even killed her.  So it is against the law to hit someone with such force that it causes injury.  And to get married after was just the nailing in the coffin.  She accepted his abuse but yet if this happens again her life might be the only thing she has left at that moment to fight for.  So this is to protect and save her life.  He him as a husband or boyfriend have anger issues then, he needs to get that looked into seriously.  We all have fathers and brothers and they have become some great husband that don’t relate to violence but walk away from any harm coming to anyone and that is what I have taught my sons and daughters.  Zero tolerance for violence no matter who they are because no one is above the law no matter what professional career they are in. They have to handle all crimes being committed by individuals as a crime.  So my prayers go out for her and for him but I am sure this is not the first time this has happen because of the way he just dragged her out of the elevator as a rag doll with no care in the world or looking to see if she was okay or showing signs of emotions of what he did.   Nothing just some empty space.  Her daughter will grown thinking this is the way a husband should treat a wife. No money is worth you selling your soul for to allow the treatment that she was getting that result in her death one day.  It doesn’t get better but worse when you allow any man or woman to disrespect you and abuse.  Mentally unhealthy relationship.   Wow!  Really!  All about the dollar bill?  Crazy.   *Now that the money is gone.  I wonder how long the couple will remain a couple.  $,$$$,$$$.00**Dj Smooth
