      "text": "Yes, you can ‘meditate’ while driving— if by ‘meditation’ you're referring to practicing mindfulness. While driving, you could pay attention to a whole range of different experiences. For example, you could notice the sensation of hands holding the steering wheel, the contact of your legs with the seat or the pressure of the feet on the accelerator or brake pedals.

You can choose to notice what's happening in the visual field and in the mind — seeing the flow of traffic traveling in the opposite direction, watching traffic signals changing from green to red and observing any reactions in the mind like agitation, anger or a desire to go faster, etc."
