(Source)- A new driver has sent his freshly registered car into a river while checking his phone just minutes after passing his driver’s exam in China, according to local media reports. The driver, identified as a Mr Zhang, said he looked up from his phone to see two people on the bridge, and swerved out of nervousness.
“While I was driving, I tried to grab my phone and read some messages while two people were in front of me on the bridge. I became nervous and turned left suddenly,” Mr Zhang told local media. His newly registered car careened off the bridge, which didn’t have a guard rail. Mr Zhang said he dislocated his shoulder in the incident and was lucky to get out of the car.
As someone who is addicted to his phone I am not going to pass my judgement on our friend Mr.Zhang for going to his phone the moment he arrived. The real problem here is with driver tests in general. Everyone does a good job on driving tests and checks mirrors and looks both ways and pretends they know how to drive correctly. When in reality everyone just sucks at driving tests.
Anyways the good news here is no one got hurt and let’s be honest here. Guys and Girls please do not text and drive nor use your phone or drive.
