How Far Can You Drive While Holding Your Breath?

1. This is a question for you: How far can you drive while holding your breath? I know it is crazy and you will think who the heck will do this anyway. But trust me that there are idiots out there who love to do stupid things like that. So no wonder the road accidents are increasing because the road has been used by all kinds of people ranging from students, youngsters, elders to professionals like engineers, laywers and doctors.

2. I have a story to tell about doctors. They drive like a drunk person. Why? They have on-calls job and not slept for more than 36 hours. Many of them are involving in road accidents. They could be the causation of the accidents. Sigh - who knows right?

3. One more thing, have you met a car which is not moving at the green traffic light during the broad day? I have and the driver is sleeping like a baby! Still thinking I'm just rambling? Read this story...

FOUR teenagers who tried to hold their breath for the time it took their car to travel about half a kilometre were hurt when the driver fainted. Police say three 19-year-olds and a 16-year-old were driving together through a rural Rochester late at night when they decided to try to hold their breath while riding through a rural Rochester-area hamlet.

The driver, 19-year-old Bryan Parslow, fainted and the car hit a boulder. He was ticketed for failing to stay in his lane. Mr Parslow is a paraplegic for whom the car was specially equipped to drive. All four teens were treated at a hospital and released.
