Out for a walk on a main street, I see my mom driving and wave but get no response. This happens often, as we live in the same town. When you are driving, are your eyes on the road in front at all times, or do you look around to see what's going on?

I scan as well but when I'm a passenger I always see something I've missed 1000 times while driving.

I look around. I want to be aware of my surroundings.

Maybe it's just cause 25 years with the police dept.. But I scan everything, always looking to see what's going on around me when i drive..

I look around, but not close enough to identify people

To be a good driver you need to look all over, while maintaining a view of the road.

I am always scanning side to side, front and back.

I look around, but just for a few seconds. I don't rubberneck.

If you don't pay attention to everywhere in front and around you, you suck at driving.

My eyes are looking all over while also paying attention to the road. I keep myself aware of my surroundings.

I don't trust other drivers. Plus, I drive quite aggressively... I never really have time to take my eyes off of the road.

Gotta appreciate what you have around you, as long as it's safe to do so.
