This happened in Scotland on the M8 motorway near Eurocentral junction at 4:45 PM this past Thursday. Here is what happened, as per the person who took the photo (who was sitting in the passenger seat of another car, by the way):
“I was in the passenger seat as we passed this guy who was doing 65mph. I looked down and couldn’t believe my eyes. He was sitting playing the Real Racing game on his iPad and glancing up at the road every now and then. I have never seen anything like it, it was terrifying to watch. The guy looked to be in his mid-20s. He saw me looking at him and was waving at me but when I tried to take a picture of his face he turned away behind the seat. At one point he undertook us still playing the game on the iPad. If the guy keeps carrying on like this, he is going to kill himself or someone else, for sure. He needs a wake-up call. The fact that he was playing a car racing game made it all the more unbelievable. Could he not have been content just to do the real thing safely?”
What a moron.
