Watching a DVD and Driving!

What Were You Doing When You Should Have Been Driving? (#4)

I wonder why vehicle manufacturing companies don't install front entertainment systems?

On a recent road trip from Possum kingdom Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico (Hwy 40), my family and I were witness to a young college age, male driver, flying by us in a car doing about 90 miles an hour.

The flying by at 90 mph is not unusual, but the self installed front entertainment system was. This yahoo was multi-tasking while driving.

There is a reason the Department of Transportation will not allow vehicle manufactures to install electronic visual equipment in the front of a vehicle!

Hint: Keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Questionable: As we came upon Moriarty, New Mexico there was a multi-car wreck and it looked like this individuals vehicle was involved. How do you explain it when someone else dies or is injured because you were watching Gilligan's Island when you should have been driving?

Do the right thing! Take a bus or plane if you want to watch videos while you travel on the road!
