Using your phone while driving ranks up there with “slapping a tiger in the face” and “seeing how much cement you can drink” in terms of potentially dangerous activities. A lot of people think it’s actually more dangerous than drunk driving. Statistics show that you’re twice as likely to get into a wreck if you’re using your phone, and a full 40% of all traffic accidents were in some way precipitated by texting or instagramming or whatever the hell. But obviously, life is busy and complicated and if you can’t wait the ten minutes until you’re at your destination to upload a photo of your boobs to Facebook, then by all means, put strangers’ lives in jeopardy.
This is the proper way to take a car selfie. Be in a parking lot. Parked. So your car isn’t going anywhere, such as forwards at 80mph, or into other cars full of people and their children.
