Strange but True Facts About Autos

  • It’s been reported that over 90% of car owners admit to singing while driving. Our only question is, how did experts come up with this number? Maybe we should petition that automakers develop smart technology that will automatically roll up the windows when it detects an occupant is singing.
  • Add to this fact another interesting bit of data: in the United States, on average, there is almost one car per person, even including babies! That’s right around 314 million people and some change. Just let that sink in for a moment. In addition, one birth occurs every 7 seconds and one death happens every 13 seconds. Now if we do a u-turn and circle back to singing in your car, it’s only a matter of time before we have a serious form of noise pollution on our hands!
  • Maybe we have to blame this song pollution epidemic on the radio. The first car radio was actually invented in 1929, so the question is “what did people do before then?” Was it just polite conversation, or were people overwhelmed with trying to get used to putt-putting along? Actually, in the late 1920’s enhanced racing cars were capable of going just over 200 miles per hour.
  • Here’s one last item to consider the next time you’re waiting for the light to change. The average driver spends approximately two weeks of their life waiting at traffic lights. Maybe that’s where the singing comes in.
