OK, I was driving along w/ my buddy back from the DePaul/Marquette B-Ball game yesterday on the expressway and look over at this guy driving a Nissan Sentra or something like that, do a double take, and realize he's reading a NOVEL while driving! I was like holy crap! And the funny thing, he was driving quite well! Now I've done the driving while drinking pop, smoking, talking on the phone and eating a taco all at the same time while steering w/ my knee in my younger years, but I've never been able concentrate on reading a full blown novel while driving. Any similar experiences?

I used to see people doing that all the time in DC traffic. Granted I couldn't say they were driving really well. Usually they were just pissing everyone else off by driving too slow or almost running into people. If you have to read while going to work, take the damn bus or train.

I see that rather often... and it makes me mad because its often in very tight bumper to bumper stop and go traffic.

The worst I ever saw was the woman with a newspaper draped over her stering wheel reading it

We get yelled at enough as it is for yakking on our cell phones while driving, but now a laptop on the steering wheel?? O lord, what's next! Pretty soon it'll be autopilot while we sleep!
