Hygiene Behind the Wheel

In my many years and many miles of driving, I have observed some bizarre activities from drivers, primarily traveling at speed on limited access highways.  Some of them are: reading a newspaper, leafing through a sheaf of papers (rehearsing some presentation?), shaving, putting on lipstick (visor down so vanity mirror can be used, and brushing/combing one's hair, to name a few.

The common ground has always been the super highway, where traffic is at least moving in the same direction although at lethal speeds.  Today I saw something unique: a woman executing a left turn onto Main Street in downtown New Paltz while brushing her teeth!
