New alarming research shows that drivers spend a fifth of their time driving not looking at the road, looking at their phones, passing clouds, or staring into space.

Revolutionary eye-tracking technology shows that drivers take their eyes off the road every nine seconds, which could explain many previously inexplicable car accidents.

The results emerged after the researchers took 100 drivers and recorded where their eyes were focused during a 22-minute drive through a city.

Special glasses followed the movements of the cornea, and documented when drivers were not looking at the road.

The study found that on average drivers spend 18 percent of their time behind the wheel not watching the road. 


People who used cell phones or GPS devices spent, on average, 22 percent of the time not looking at the road.

11 Drake Lyrics That Prove You Can Make It Through Cuffin’ Season Alone

To the common listener, it’s easy to assume Drake and “cuffing season” go together like crostata and Nutella. Right? Find a bae, find a copy of NWTS (or Spotify that sh*t) and go get lost somewhere romantic. It all sounds great in theory. Real life application, however, is a completely different matter. First of all, […]

An Ode To The Awkward Girl Who Shys From Embracing Her Uniqueness

I should preface this with the fact that I spilled wine on my sheets as I casually tried to write in bed. Clearly, I’m qualified to write on this subject. We girls — the awkward ones, the not-so-perfect ones, the I-trip-barefoot ones — must band together. After all, there is so much more to gain from […]
