Since 2016 there has been a number of fatalities and many drivers are oblivious to the dangers and risks this presents.
Some of those that recognise the dangers of live streaming while driving but continue streaming because they think they are a good driver.
Driving is a complex operation and needs your full concentration all the time. Drivers need their hands on the wheel and their “eyes and mind “on the road too. The loss of one of these vital components, even for a fraction of time, can be the difference between life and death.
March 2nd – post your eyes; sensible, beautiful, wacky…and the message.
