We’ve all been there—you are right in the middle of rush hour traffic on a Friday afternoon, the sun is in your eyes and you feel a sneeze coming on. According to some research, more than two million drivers
have crashed because of a sneeze while they were driving, and at least a third of adults believe driving is the worst time to sneeze. In fact, sneezing can have disastrous, or even fatal consequences when it happens to a driver. A 79-year old Australian woman died in 2014 after a sneeze caused her to jerk the wheel of her car, causing a rollover. A school teacher in Missouri lost control of her car in 2012 after a sneeze, running into another driver, who lost her life in the accident.
