Listen: Dow, Arizona And Braves discussed on Mac and Gaydos
"But most Arizona drivers never good. So I would not text and drive. Our you. Okay. But what what is going to make people stop doing it money? Or prizes or prizes rises because you know, what I was behind a car yesterday going like twenty miles per hour. And I'm like what is going on to school zone. No. It wasn't a school zone. The I think they were watching TV come on. Not kidding you. I think. Somebody who's watching TV in the back or tilted. Yeah. The craziest thing I've seen is the combination of several things, you know, not just a cell phone but lighting a cigarette. Eating a sandwich. Madison. A text message driving with your knee trying to put lipstick on and talk on the phone guy. Leafing through like a legal brief Jauregui in the tunnel. Clipping his nails. That's gross people watching television. Dow was me that wasn't me. It was the Braves person in front of me. Texting texting? So there's an app out there. And basically it's going to try and break your bad habits. And if you do break, your bad habits the app says it will make you a better driver a safer driver. And we'll give you crap. Yeah. Basically if you want to counteract the the way people drive dangerously. Well, you got to give him a good incentive for driving and one of the ways is reward them with either money or some kind of gift extensive research shows the dangers of distracted driving study say the drivers using phones are four times likelier to cause a crash than other drivers we've seen it on the road. We've seen absolute when you're on the highway, you know, someone's texting and driving. They're the ones that are driving like a drunk person seriously weaving get Americans have reacted to that research. Largely ignoring it. Yes. All the time. I have done it. I have I do. And studies show that a person who talks on the phone while driving is as likely to get into a crash as someone with a point oh, eight blood alcohol level. So is this apple good idea? And we'll people use it. I don't know. I I don't think people people don't like to be told what to do if they want to answer the phone in the car. They're gonna answer the phone in the car, if they're going to text voice tax now. Yeah, it's not like, but there's also Uber people still drink and drive to. I mean, you're right people think that it won't happen to them. Don't tell me what to do the point at which drivers are considered intoxicated. I think like when people are drunk. You know, they're not checking the road. They can change means. And you're talking on the phone. No. You can't look I can already tell she's a bad driver Ackerley. I I have a better chance driving drunk than I do on cell phone. How okay. Oh, no, okay. Research also shows that drivers overestimate their own ability to safely multitask. That's something that David Strayer professor at the university of Utah has demonstrated through extensive research and testing in a special simulation lab. Oh, this should be interesting. Let's go to the lab live. What we've been looking multi tap being one of us guys boring. Of course, he is what we've been looking multitask, being one of the things we've found is that people just can't multitask, as well as they could if they were paying full attention to driving you needed a research project to do that. Now, we have people talking on a hands free cell phone, and when they were driving one of the tasks you're supposed to do was take an exit when they saw a rest stop have people who are driving failed to take their exit. They'd just drove right by they didn't see it. All right. So in order to make it worth your while Florida is one of five states texting. While driving remains merely a secondary offense. So what they've done is. They have a driving performance scorecards city. Or family competitions and prizes. Like free coffee gift cards cash rewards from sponsoring businesses or discounted rates for insurance companies. So you basically earn something by driving safer.."
