You get in your car, and you just drive to your destination. When you finally get to your destination you might think to yourself, 'wait how did I get here,' or you don't remember the drive and somehow you're magically at your destination.
According to SWNS, there is a new survey out and it found that 27% of us regularly zone out while we're driving. The average is four times a week, and 55% of drivers said they sometimes feel like they're just on "autopilot" behind the wheel.
The survey also found out that having a lot on your mind is the #1 reason we zone out, and 49% agreed it's true. The rest of the top five are being tired, driving the same stretch of road all the time, driving the same route every day, and because driving is just boring.
Here are a few more random stats from the survey:
1. 90% of us think we're good drivers. Even though 22% of us have had someone comment on our bad driving before.
2. 49% of us sometimes get distracted while driving. Eating and using our phone are the top two things that distract us.
3. 49% also have a friend of family member who's such a bad driver, it makes them feel unsafe.
4. 1 in 7 of us don't think we'd pass if we had to retake our driver's test.
