Where to start? First, 1st sentence of description describes a type of Distracted Driving, then it continues as 'cars don't steer like that', then it goes all over the place, including the examples. This should be an index (or transplanted), and a new index about distracted driving should be made. Looks like the creator was a little distracted This is a big issue in real life, and examples can get very unusual.

I say make this Distracted Driving - the trope where drivers manage to drive without looking at the road. Cut all the other content, and if people want to YKTTW pages for other driving tropes, let them.
What I want to do with this:
I say other points about bad or illegal driving should go through YKTTW, which is the place for collecting examples and building tropes. This page is primarily about distracted driving, and we should clarify and rename it as such.
Made a crowner, hollered. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/crowner.php/PageAction/HollywoodDriving?open=all#roqozs0u
With Mod Hat OnCrowner melded to thread.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
Ready to call this?
If the top option passes, it shouldn't be called Distracted Driving, or it'll attract ALL instances of distracted driving, and not just the specific type for the specific reasons called for in this trope.
^ I am inclined to agree.
Two Christmas wormsI am almost inclined to agree.
There's nothing on distracted driving on this site. Maybe even doing-something-else-and-driving-at-the-same-time. There's at least a Missing Supertrope.

With Mod Hat OnThis one is very ready to be called for the leading action.

SF-81A Black KnightThere's already a trope in YKTTW called Artistic License - Cars that covers various other aspects of driving and vehicular mistakes.
Bump. Think the YKTTW looks a lot better than Hollywood Driving, and the latter might need to start over from YKTTW.
The YKTTW is just "miscellaneous errors related to cars." It's no better than any of the existing Artistic License X pages.
Hollywood Driving is related to cars (it's being driven in a way that shouldn't be possible). I'd say it fits as a subtrope.

Two Christmas wormsHmm - this crowner calls for an Alt-Names crowner. The YKTTW is a nice enrichment, though.
Artistic License - Cars has been launched.
Before it crashed, the crowner said to restrict this to the trope described in the definition - "characters look at the passenger instead of the road" and rename accordingly.
How about Keep Your Eyes On The Road?
Special trousers. Very heroic.
SF-81A Black KnightAgree. EDIT: Except it's a Stock Phrase and could be confused with people telling folks to keep their eyes on the road.

Why not change it to Distracted Driving?
It's not about distracted driving though. That implies people on the phone or texting or whatever while driving. That's not a fictional trope - it happens in fiction, but nowhere as often as it does in real life. This page is for the near-universal trope whereby drivers face their passengers instead of the road.
