Mindless Driving?

"I wonder if he is serious or just mindless driving?" My husband's comment after following a vehicle for several miles with the blinker flashing on, off, on, off, on, off, on, off, on, off (you get the picture)? It was quite impossible to determine the intentions of the driver ahead of us. We were unsure if it was safe to pass or should we stay a safe distance behind him just in case he actually did turn right from the left lane...

Mindless drivers. Driving to work. Driving to school. Driving to the lake, the church, a funeral. Driving, driving, driving. Radio blarring, phones lodged between their shoulder and ear, eyes glaring at nothingness as they maneuver a large vehicular machine down the highway.

I guess we have all been guilty of mindless driving. Have you ever found yourself at a destination with no recollection of the details along the journey? Were you talking on the phone, or singing your favorite song with the radio? Now, we would be quick to say that was not mindless driving. Or would we? Our mind was elsewhere...not on the road. Shutter! I don't know about you but I would hate to be on the same highway as a mindless driver. Whatever the case or the distraction, I hope we keep our minds and eyes on the road and reach our destinations safely. With that said, excuse me while I go get my mind before I get in the car. See you later!
