It’s nothing new at all, but driving means letting go of the phone. For some it is impossible and it is a shame. Fortunately here, the motorist in question has quite a flying blow.
The scene takes place at Tampa, Florida, and was captured by a dashcam (on-board camera). We are in the car that has almost got hit for free by a distracted motorist. Distracted by what, we can’t exactly define it but one thing is for sure, it seemed a lot more interesting than the traffic in front of it.
The proof, when the traffic slows down, the driver in question does not even realize it and rushes straight towards the author of the video. Fortunately, taken by adrenaline and in a saving reflex, the inattentive driver grabs his steering wheel and turns as fast as possible.
He then manages to avoid an unfortunate shock by sending himself down the aisle.
More fear than harm
Fortunately no one was hurt in this story. Indeed, the driver of this KIA managed to avoid everyone with a single swipe of the wheel. And even if he went to rub shoulders with the daisies for a few seconds, he did well too.
So it came close to it, but all is well. Let’s just say thata little more attention behind the wheel can’t hurt.
