Woman uses to feet to drive

I don't know why this woman is trying this hard to make me mad when I DON'T EVEN KNOW HER. 

In photos submitted to WPVI in Philadelphia, a woman is seen not letting pesky ol' driving get in the way of not driving. Instead of even pretending to drive like a pretend-responsible human being, she has her feet up on the steering wheel, eyes - and hands! - focused entirely on the non-task of screwing around on her phone. Somebody please arrest her.

Are You Guilty of this Common (yet Dangerous) Habit While Driving?

We often think of the inside of our cars as our own personal space and forget that there are many surrounding factors like other drivers nearby. In our personal space we often like to feel comfortable by singing a song or quoting a movie character among other things. Therefore, immediately when we enter the car and start singing or doing other things it’s ok. The real problem begins when we start the car and begin driving.

In many instances, drivers will slow down and even bring traffic to a standstill as they try to satisfy their curiosity and get a better look at the aftermath of a collision. Go here to learn why this is a social and safety issue.
