Are you a distracted driver?

Are you a distracted driver? Do you multitask like talk on the phone, eat, or do anything else when driving?

I used to be a distracted driver but since having kids I'm a lot more focused behind the wheel.

I try not to be.  I'll drink and nibble.  Nothing messy.  I won't talk on the phone or set the GPS....I pull over for that.

I drink coffee sometimes but other than that no. We take driving very seriously. Too many family members have passed in car accidents.
My phone is ignored and I also have to say I love the controls on the steering wheel for the radio.

No, not really. If I do it is when I am alone in the car. If my child is in the car I pay extra attention to the road.

I never answer the phone while driving. Occasionally I might sip on a drink if the conditions are safe. My biggest distraction is my children.

I don't drive but when I did I wasn't. I'll likely be forced to start doing it again soon though and I know for certain I won't. 

DH does talk on the phone but he had a blue tooth. Now the entire car is blue tooth accessable so its even less of an issue he just touches a button on the steering wheel. Thats about the only thing he does. 

I think its important to be a focused driver at all times. Not just when you have kids in the car because while you may not have kids in the car someone else does its important to be alert for not only yourself but everyone on the road.

 My whole car is bluetooth, so to make a call I just push a button on the steering wheel. I do drink, coffee, diet pepsi, water in the car, occasionally I'll eat but nothing complicated.
