Super-Moron Driver Reading A Book, Kindle, Phone At The Same Time

If you thought the flaming bicycle was a road menace – it gets worse. This amateur vid captures an idiotic driver (though impressive multitasker) somehow reading a paperback, Kindle and phone, all at the same time. On the highway.

The setup almost deserves technical plaudit if it weren’t so shockingly risky – a giant book wedged behind the steering wheel, a Kindle in one hand, and what looks like a smartphone of some kind in the other hand. There are no hands on the steering wheel, at any point. Was he speeding to an exam he was late for, trying to get some last minute texting in? Just really engrossed in Jane Eyre? Possessing a death wish? This could only be more dangerous to other cars on the road if instead of a Kindle, he was holding a grenade launcher. [via Fark]
