Agentfazexx's wife strikes again.
I can't imagine doing anything on a brand new car except enjoying driving it and just taking in that wonderful new car scent but I guess some people find the facebook post about Natalya's new cat more interesting that they'd rather just do that instead
I'm interested in knowing what car it was since I thought most cars sold in 2017 would have sensors that stop the car from hitting shit like this. A cheap new SEAT wagon I rented in 2012 had em for christ sake
There needs to be harsher penalties for driving with your phone
I never understood how people can be so distracted by phones. Don't get me wrong I like my phone, but when I'm driving I'm doing just that. I've had way to many close calls due to other peoples careless actions. Plus I like my new car, and wish to keep it in good condition.
Even my car is one big bluetooth accessory and can do speech to text for me. I get a text, it reads it, and I respond. All without touching a single button.
Just my opinion, not necessarily backed up by hard evidence.
It blows my mind that none of the pedestrians actually bothered looking left until the car was about to hit them. I don't even start crossing the street until I see cars at least start to slow down, and I don't stop looking until I am safe on the other side. Was still almost hit once, though.
I really can't understand the mentality behind using your phone while driving. I'm taking driver's lessons myself now and I already nearly lost control over the wheel once when I got confused with the gear shifter. Oh and I was using my phone while on my bike and nearly crashed into a tree, so that never again too.
When i was in uni it was in the city , i always waited till the cars stopped before crossing or were far enough away for me to walk out of their way if they did not stop.
I realllllyyy dont want to be hit by a dipshit who goes through a orange light or uses their phone.
the fault is totally on the woman driving while texting and i hope she gets in tons of trouble, but jesus christ these people were so oblivious.
i've been taught to look both ways before crossing/stay aware while crossing even if its green, hard to believe there's people who just stare forwards and hope for the best.
it should ofcourse be the default that you can cross without having to hope for the best, but while thats not possible its better to be safe than sorry.
In England it's a £300 on the spot fine (I think anyways, maybe it's less) and 3 points on your license. Rightly so.
I can't believe people still do it. If you're driving, you're driving, nothing else!
Anyone have that video where they ask kids if they look at their phone whilst driving then bring in the victim of an accident which happened because of it?
Never would've expected to laugh out loud when I opened this article. Props.
How did she not hit the brake until after she had mowed through everyone?
This is the kind of shit I get scared of everyday while bycicling on a road with cars. People with their fucking phones in their face ready to cripple me into a wheelchair or kill me.
I can't tell who was dumber, the woman hitting the first pedestrians, yelping, and then continuing to drive through them, or
The pedestrians that kept walking into her path after she blew the red light and started driving into people.
As people have said, needs to be harsher penalties for people using their mobile phone while driving. I absolutely cannot stand it especially since I primarily ride a motorbike. Thank fuck lanefiltering is legal where I live, I've avoided being rear ended 15 times in 7 months (Person crashed into the person who was just in front of me), all of them caused by people on their mobile phone.
As far as I'm concerned, should be immidiate licence loss and a big fine, just like DUI should be too.
There's no excuse to being on the phone in a car, if you can buy a car and a phone then you can buy a hands-free.
Pretty sure you can sue if that ever happens.
