I feel inspired to sing. “You’re so vain you probably think this song is about you don’t you don’t you.”
Well, this isn’t a song – it is a post – with a friendly reminder to not be as dimwited as this woman in england. Steve Woodmore posted a video of a woman not caring that she is operating a vehicle.
“The blonde woman appears to be staring at herself in her mirror instead of keeping her eyes on the road and at one point appears to have her head in her handbag while crawling forward” reports the daily mail. They continue.
“The female motorist was driving a white Ford and was filmed applying her make-up during the morning rush hour” and had no knowledge that her mirror was in.
Mr Woodmore, 57, describes why he posted the video. He said: ‘We were queuing at these lights and I looked in my mirror and I panicked thinking the woman behind wasn’t going to stop.
‘I’m surprised she didn’t hit me, she got so close. I had to move forward a bit to make some room.
‘That’s why I decided to watch the footage back when I got home and I was totally shocked by what I saw – she wasn’t paying any attention to the road at all.
‘She kept looking down at her handbag and there was one point she had picked up her bag and was looking in it while she was moving forward.
‘Then she was looking in her mirror to do her make-up or put on spot cream or whatever she’s doing. She was up to all sorts.
He added: ‘Wherever her mind was, it was not on driving. She was so distracted she didn’t even realise that her wing mirror was completely folded in the whole time.
‘The road those traffic lights are on run past three schools and there are always kids crossing the road.
‘She was so busy looking in the wrong mirrors and doing her makeup she could have hit a child and she would not have even known about it. Watching the video, I was horrified.
No I will not post the video because why give her any love. You can look it up yourself. The daily mail headline cited is
