You finally ended your long day at work and hopped into your car, thinking that you are leaving everyone at work and entering to your own world. Unfortunately, your car is not your own little world because everyone on the road can see what you are doing inside (unless you put up dark tinted windows). Here is the list of things people do in their cars.
1. Having Quick Meals
Whether you are rushing in between meetings or traveling on a road trip with friends, snacking on the go is absolutely essential. Car designers have been so thoughtful to include cup holders in their designs. Cars have turned into a picnic table - a place for snacking, munching and lunching.
2. Picking Nose
Some people may choose to pick their nose in their car when they are alone. But don't forget there are windows, we can see you!
3. Applying Makeup
We bet you have to use your rear-view mirror or visor mirror as a mini vanity in the morning because you get out of bed at the very last minute. But be careful, most accidents were caused by women drivers being distracted while applying cosmetics.
4. Taking Nap
Tired of chit-chatting or snacking half way during a long journey? Some people prefer to take a short nap to recharge their energy!
5. Watching Movies
Movies are the best entertainment tech for road trips. It's a brilliant method to make sure your kids are able to sit still throughout the entire journey.
6. Replying Emails/ Doing Work
Work will never ends especially when your company granted you a mobile access to your office mailbox. You just have to do your work at anytime, anywhere.
It's unhealthy, but yet people are still doing it. Should there be a law to penalise drivers from smoking in the car to protect passengers from second-hand smoke?
8. Talking on the Phone
Calling someone is the best thing to do when you are caught in a massive jam. But don't forget to go hands-free because talking on the phone while driving can be as risky as driving drunk.
Some of you may be worried that you'll miss the most interesting part of the conversation, hence, decided to take 5 seconds of your attention away from the road to reply "LOL" or "HAHAHA". But this is dangerous, my dear!
10. Taking Selfie
What's so fantastic about taking selfie in the car? Firstly, you can kill time while you are stuck in the jam or at the traffic light. Secondly, cars are perfect selfie studios - You can use your back camera, still see what photo you are taking in the rearview mirror (you don’t need that for driving), and get natural lighting. Perfecto!
11. Singing Out Loud
One of the best ways to pass time during massive jam or a long road trip is to sing your way along the highway.
12. Letting Off Wind
This is the only one that none on the road can see what you are doing in the car. However, if you are with passengers, you might put them to suffering.
