Keep 'em at 10 and 2

Speeding takes concentration. If you are going to be going much faster than the rest of traffic, or even just what is considered safe for that particular stretch of road, you'd better have your attention fixed on the road, so you can make your split-second reactions that much more accurately. Which is why we're both impressed and disturbed by a man allegedly speeding recently in Canada.

He was arrested after another driver called the complaint in. Turns out that he was doing more than going faster than everyone else. He was doing it while also watching porn.

That's some impressive, and foolish, multi-tasking right there. The only way we can really picture something like this making sense would be through some sort of heads-up display, if you'll pardon the pun, but even that is filled with potential problems. Never mind the trouble that could possibly be created when a car you're considering passing also happens to be jiggling and moaning at the same time.

We understand the appeal of car sex. We even understand the more dangerous sex play behind the wheel. But we just can't get behind the concept of watching porn while driving.

After all, when going at high speeds, it's really hard to turn one-handed.
