THE DANGERS of driving while distracted by a mobile phone or smart watch are already well documented. But in this video, such hazards are made plain to see, when two young drivers are challenged to drive while using their phones – and end having crash after crash.
In the film, the drivers drift across lanes on a motorway, crash into the back of a stationary car and even smash head-on into a double-decker bus. Fortunately, the tests are conducted on a specialist simulator.
Despite the risk of a six-point fine and £200 fine, drivers continue to operate their phone in the car. The study of the habits of 1500 drivers, conducted by The Car People, showed that receiving a phone call (31%), an incoming text (21%), and checking their phone for directions (20%) were the things most likely to distract drivers.
