65.9 percent of drivers pick their nose in the car and other crazy driving stats


Over 2,000 drivers in the U.S. confessed to their most guilty driving distractions, and NH drivers showed up as the least likely to drive buzzed or drunk, according to survey conducted by NetQuote.

Of the many unusual acts that may take place behind the wheel, 65.9% of drivers admitted to picking their nose of driving. Eighteen percent admitted to taking a selfie while driving. Over 20% of north-easterners are likely to text and drive. About 19% said they would drive away quickly if they accidentally hit an empty car in a parking lot.

For all those odd habits we all know we have, here are some that drivers in the U.S. openly admitted: Putting on or taking off an article of clothing, kissing, popping a pimple, cleaning the dashboard or windshield, watching a video, vomiting, flossing teeth, urinating, tweezing eyebrows, shaving legs, putting in contacts, painting and/or clipping nails and engaging in sexual activity. Phew, that's a whole lot of risky behavior while trying to keep your eyes on the road, or do they?

How well can one really paint their nails while driving? Not to mention urinating - now that just sounds uncomfortable. For all you distracted drivers out there, be careful, and maybe wait till you park before changing, or paying any attention to your overall hygiene.
