I mentioned my driving mishap this morning on the K-Bear Morning Show – the driver that was making a left turn across a set of parallel yellow lines…What’s that old phrase – ‘You learn something new every day’? Guess what?
I am a firm believer in “traffic Karma”. Not sure if you are familiar with the concept so let me explain: Traffic Karma is when you give someone on the road a break. Whether you let them cut in, give up a parking space to someone else, let someone know they left their lights on, help someone broke down on side of the road, or even giving someone a lift to get gas
In response to the National Transportation Safety Board-proposed ban on cellphones while driving, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers tried to defend hands-free devices. They’re “designed to be used in a way that helps drivers keep their eyes on the road,” they said, but now it looks like this defense doesn’t hold water.
Studies about the dangers of using a cell device while driving have produced mixed results — some say talking or texting behind the wheel can increase the odds of a crash exponentially, while others say the perils are few.
Regardless, the National Transportation Safety Board is so convinced of the dangers of “distracted driving” that it’s now called for a nationwide ban on non-emergency cell phone use while driving. Even hands-free devices are not excluded.
In recent years, study after study has raised the alarm about the dangers of talking on the phone while driving, with some saying you could be four times as likely to have a crash if you’re using a phone behind the wheel.
But new research indicates it may have been much ado about nothing.
According to Harris Poll chairman Humphrey Taylor regarding a new survey, “The number of drivers who engage in potentially dangerous, in some cases extremely dangerous, behaviors while driving is terrifyingly high.”
Justin Bieber’s youthful good looks helped make him a star. But, according to ‘Today,’ the teen phenom’s baby face nearly landed him in hot water in Miami.
On July 29, an undercover Florida cop mistook Bieber for a child and pulled him over during a traffic stop. Bieber was behind the wheel of a brand-new Rolls Royce convertible with singer Sean Kingston in the passenger seat.
We also saw a few baby videos go viral, both good and bad. The good: a so-cute-its-adorable video of two twin babies having a conversation, which launched into a popular Internet trend. The bad: Well, we'll let tennis pro David Ferrer's actions do the talking (see below).
We've pulled together 12 of the most talked about viral videos from the week. Watch them all now. (Trust us: Your job can wait.)
