In most countries it is illegal to use your mobile device whilst you are driving. It is illegal in the UK, and in most states around the US.
Texting and calling is becoming less common however, due to more people deciding they want to update their status and tell everyone they just drove onto Highway 66.
When a car was swerving from side to side on the road, one would think it is due to a drunk driver on the loose, however nowadays, it is more likely because they can’t keep their mitts off their smartphone.
The Evening Standard newspaper in Britain even did a newspaper article about the use of Facebook on mobile devices, due to it becoming a growing trend, not just in the UK, but all over the globe.
Facebook requires some focus from the mind. This focus should be on the operation of the motor vehicle, and not the operation of your Samsung Galaxy SIII. This lack of focus on the driving slows down your reactions. This means the only pictures on the internet will be of your smashed up car, and maybe your smashed up body too.
So a little tip; if you are driving down the road, it is probably not a smart idea to get your phone out and take a photo on Instagram of a cool car driving past you, and then share it on Facebook. You never know, that evidence could be used in court of law!
