distracted driving A Facebook Tragedy!

We all know how dangerous it is but it doesn’t stop us all from doing it. It’s sad to hear the story of a Chicago woman who hit and killed a pedestrian while updating her Facebook status while she was behind the wheel.

Araceli Beas was updating her Facebook page on her mobile phone while driving when it happened.

A lawsuit has been filed and claims Beas didn’t keep a proper lookout, drove while using an electronic communication device and failed to slow down to avoid an accident.

Does news like this encourage you to stop texting/updating your Facebook while driving?

    absolutely… also I have the sync in my Ford Fusion and though it is hands free….. your mind is still pre-occupied while driving.. very dangerous.. still seeing many people chatting on phones even though it’s against the law???
