Fellow Audi Drivers!
Please don’t be *THAT* distracted driver that makes the rest of us look bad.
Put the phone down. There’s bluetooth and Audi Connect for a reason. There are apps that will automatically reply to an incoming text message that you’re driving and taking safety seriously. Whatever notification you got from Facebook or Twitter can wait.
Put the newspaper down. There is no reason you need to read the news when your eyes should be on the road and aware of what’s going on around you. The Washington Post can wait. Heck, you could try listening to WTOP for the latest news information.
And to the guy in the A7 this morning, yes, we were in bumper to bumper traffic, but you were part of the problem.
- Reading the newspaper meant that drivers around you were watching you and keeping their distance as your eyes were looking down instead of ahead
- Having the newspaper spread across the dash meant that it was blocking your view
- Your lack of attention to the road meant that everyone behind you was waiting for you to move
- Pulling down the visor, checking & popping your pimples was disgusting
Remember, folks! Just cause you’re in your car, other people can still see you. When your eyes keep looking down or you’re checking out your latest battle with acne, other people can see you!
Keeping my hands on the wheel,
