You think it's bad on the roads at the moment? We ain't seen nothing yet.
Consider the rate at which mobile phone use is observed & reported, and then ask yourself what example is being set to the backseat passengers in those cars, who are the drivers of tomorrow.
A fortnight ago, I saw a parent driving a white Lexus SUV along South Rd in Brighton, using an iPad while driving. This was during peak school pick-up time.
Less than a week later, I saw another woman driving out of a Hampton service station, again using an iPad while driving.
Somehow I doubt they were isolated incidents, or that I somehow managed to see the only two drivers in Melbourne doing that. I don't believe in coincidences.
Both of them had kids in the car. > Those kids will grow up thinking that's entirely normal / acceptable behaviour.
