1. Distracted driving

You are spot on, distracted driving whether technology or simple things like eating and applying makeup are serious problems.

Here in the US I see it more every day, yesterday I saw a man next to me reading the paper and eating while driving presumably with his knees....he was drifting back and forth in his lane for most of my commute...

Stopping at a light the woman in front of me rolled into the crosswalk and then locked up her brakes, thankfully no pedestrians, she didn't notice the light was red because she had her driver side sun shade down and was looking in the mirror on it to put on her lipstick.

Twice yesterday I saw someone without an EZ Pass transponder at the toll lanes backing up into oncoming traffic to change lanes because they mistakenly entered the lines that said "EZ PASS ONLY NO CASH" in 1 foot high letters in white on bright purple backgrounds....tough to see from space, not so hard to see from a quarter mile away.

If people would pull their heads out of their collective asses we could probably eliminated a third of fatalities on the highways.
