( 4UMF NEWS ) Driver Steers With Feet So She Can Text:
This driver won’t toe the line.
A woman a Pennsylvania highway was caught driving using her foot to steer while her hands and her eyes were locked on her phone to send text messages.
“Her hands are on the phone, and her feet are steering,” Sarah DeLong said in the clip she recorded. “What a f—ing idiot.”
When DeLong called out the irresponsible driver for playing footsie with her steering wheel, the woman turned and smirked at her, as she continued down the Schuylkill Expressway for about another 20 minutes with her sole steering.
While DeLong jotted down the reckless driver’s license plate, Philadelphia police have not made any arrests, telling Action News officers would have to catch her in the act to bust her.
The shoe-steerer was last seen driving toward Center City.
Texting while driving has become a serious issue on roads, with tickets for the crime increasing by 840% since 2011 in New York.
At the same time, tickets for talking on the phone while driving, which is 23-times less riskier than texting while driving, have steadily decreased.
