No selfies while driving: Sharjah Police




Sharjah: Taking a selfie alone at home and looking in a mirror isn’t going to hurt anyone.

But posing for a self-portrait while driving a Hummer on a highway at 120km/h is sheer madness, said Sharjah Police while launching a new safe driving campaign on Sunday.

Major Abdul Rahman Khatr, director of communications at Sharjah Police Traffic Department, said statistics showed most major accidents were due to using mobile phones while driving.

“The number one activity that should be occurring while you are behind the wheel is driving. Hundreds of thousands of people are injured each year as a result of distracted driving and these injuries and deaths are preventable. Put the camera down and wait until you arrive at a safe destination. Don’t let that driving selfie or video be the last photo you ever take.”
