Ford Driving Course Takes On Selfies

a distracted driver...
You see them everywhere these days- people taking pictures of themselves everywhere they go. Selfies at the beach, at cultural events, at concerts, while driving. Wait, while driving? Yep, driving selfies are a new trend. A new dangerous trend, because they contribute to distracted driving.

The Ford Motor Company is trying to get the word out about why driving selfies are a bad idea and their "Ford Driving Skills for Life" program for young drivers is taking on the pictures. The Denver Post has the story.
