how fast could you be driving to make that an issue?
You don't have to go fast for this to be an issue. You're supposed to keep your eyes on the road for a reason.
At 50 mph you're traveling approximately 72 feet pr second. (if my conversions are correct; i live in "the metric world") Look away for half a second and you're 36 feet closer to anything in the road. Count in one second more for reaction time and ypu've travelled more than a hundred feet before breaks are applied. Then add stopping distance.
a careful driver does allot of things besides looking straight ahead with eyes locked on the road.
check the side mirror when changing lanes to the left.
check the farther away side mirror when merging right as two lanes combine to one.
check the rear-view mirror constantly.
read an exit sign.
read the mph caution sign which is flashing: oh, a school zone speed limit
observe that a car door is opening on the right.
see the bicyclist riding on the sidewalk about to jump into traffic.
what are you talking about???
(yes to what smkettner says below. HUD at least as, if not more, distracting.)
