Intense mind wandering behind many road crashes: study
Intense mind wandering was associated with greater responsibility for a crash - 17 per cent (78 of 453 crashes in which the driver was thought to be responsible) compared with 9 per cent (43 of 502 crashes in which the driver was not thought to be responsible).
The authors concluded in a statement that the association between intense mind wandering and crashing "could stem from a risky decoupling of attention from online perception, making the driver prone to overlook hazards and to make more errors
The study was published in British Medical Journal.
