Some time ago there was a report on the radio where highway patrol officers were relating things they had seen:

  1. a woman putting on panty hose on I90, driving eractically
  2. a man shaving with a BIC razor, shaving foam, and a large cup of water … never heard of electric razor
  3. on I20 in Iowa a woman reading a book balanced on the steering wheel
  4. a woman putting on eye make up using the visor mirror set so she couldn’t see out of the windshield
  5. a man balancing his checkbook, checkbook on one knee and calculator on the other

And, these were all before cell phones!

Many European car manufacturers didn’t know why their cars weren’t selling to comparable models from japan and the U.S. when they discovered their cars lacked cup holders. Maybe they were on to something, cars are for driving and on the Autobahn you do not want any distractions!
