I've been traveling a lot lately. I take a shuttle bus to the airport. My vantage point in the bus is quite a bit higher than most vehicles on the road, so I'm able to see down into the car cabin of other vehicles.
It's barely an exaggeration to say that probably 7/10 drivers are screwing around on their phone. It's actually made me seriously question if I want to keep riding. I see it constantly, in town, on the highway, just everywhere. People can't put down their freaking phones. At this point I've gone about 8 years and 30,000 miles without incident. Based on the quality of driving I see daily, I'm wondering just how far my luck will take me.
But yes, back to the topic at hand: I'll add that in my opinion, one should be aware of your mood too when choosing to ride. Especially after a highly stressful event: death of a friend or family member, loss of job, breakup (extreme examples). I've ridden before in a terrible mood and found my patience was lacking and I was making more aggressive and impulsive decisions than I should have been. Stay safe out there folks.
