  • Yes! I have to have complete silence.... its like my mind thinks it can see better if there is anything competing for my other senses to engage.

    And of course my concentration is better.

  • Yes, I can't have anything that could potentially distract me. Like today for instance, I reached over to pick up something while driving, and there was a truck stopping in front of me, but because I was focusing on the object I was reaching for, even though I clearly seen it, my mind wasn't focused on it, and I had to brake fast at the last minute.

  • Wow... no, I don't lol. The only time I do it is when I need to hear someone else talking or I realize I'm probably blowing my daughter's eardrums out lol. My husband does it, though lol. that's funny.

  • Yes, I've been known to turn the radio down too.

    But then I keep it down, and no matter the cold, the window is cracked so I can HEAR police sirens, etc.

    A few weeks back I was thankful I DID have the radio OFF. Coming down the road going south, to the right are side streets. I heard cop cars, could not see them so I knew they were on the side roads.......little did I know they were chasing some one!!!!! 25-30 mph is the posted limit.

    Well this lame assed fool came from my right! I had slowed down on my street to 25mph(posted 30) and he acted like he was stopping and DIDNT! I slammed on my brakes and I missed his back end of the truck by mere INCHES! I was shaken up, started crying glad the kids were not with me.

    I moved up as the cop chasing him about t-boned me....and 4 other cops were after him. I hope they caught the jerk.

    Now I ride with it LOW....and my window still open a few inches. You never know....
