FORGET TEXTING: Study finds daydreaming the top cause of distracted driving accidents. “A study by the Erie Insurance company of the roughly 6,500 fatal accidents that occurred in 2010 and 2011 which involved distracted driving found that it wasn’t cell phones at texting that were mostly to blame, but simple daydreaming. According to police reports of the incidents, 62 percent of the accidents involved one or more drivers that were ‘lost in thought,’ compared to just 12 percent that were using a phone to text or make a call.”

The obvious solution: Ban thought!
