Distracted drivers are unsafe drivers

As I tore through some recent editorial copy for a project, I came across this tidbit. I'll just go ahead and bold the items I am guilty of.

Pay attention when driving! Even brief moments of distraction -- including all of the activities below -- can cause major accidents and lifelong consequences:
Tune the radio
Eat, drink, or smoke
Pick something up from the floor or between the seats
Read, write
Reach for the glove compartment
Talk on the cell phone
Clean the inside of the windshield

Argue with another passenger
Comb or brush your hair
Break up fights between your kids
Put on makeup
Put on contact lenses or use eye drops
File, clip, or polish your nails.
