According to research by the AA  many drivers are watching the clock, thinking about work and looking ahead to the future all whilst being behind the wheel. A third (30%) of drivers said they only think about driving and navigation when they are behind the wheel.  

The research also found a significant difference between the things that played on men and women’s minds when driving. Below is a table exploring these differences. The findings conclude that the only thing, except driving, that plays on male drivers’ minds more than women’s is DIY.

Women were more than twice as likely as men to think about meal planning and twice as likely to think about childcare arrangements when driving.
