“Selfie” Behind The Wheel: Taking Distracted Driving To New Low
Frequent readers of this blog, or followers of our Facebook or Twitter feeds, will surely know that we often post about the dangers of distracted driving (and here, and here). In the past, we posted about using cell phones, and of course, texting while driving.
Yesterday, I read on the insurancejournal.com website about a driving distraction I had not previously thought of, so thought I would share.
It seems that a man in Maine recently crashed into a tree and seriously injured several of his passengers while trying to get into a “Selfie” photo being taken by one of his passengers.
This kind of idiotic behavior on the part of a driver would probably be hilarious, if it wasn’t so potentially deadly.
Make no mistake, a car accident is more than capable of killing someone. It only takes a moment of distraction to cause an accident. If you absolutely must take a Selfie while you are in a car – pull over. Everybody traveling on Florida’s roads – including your passengers – will thank you.
