Yoh, if there’s one no-no when driving a car, it has got to be the cellphone.
That stuff is addictive, people, it must be. After all, how come when the cheerful little sound signifies an incoming message, we just cannot ignore it and we have to pick up the phone while driving?
It’s malligheid. I mean, come on, we really can’t multi-task at the best of times, so in what reality is it OK to stare at the screen while going forwards in a ton of metal on wheels? It is not. You don’t see Monster Truck drivers gooing a WhatsApp in mid-air now do you.
Really, staying safe on the roads, and reducing the unnecessary deaths, takes focus, not distraction. The change, as always, begins with you.
