Here’s another one for your trends to avoid list: taking a picture of yourself while driving, or as the kids call it, #DrivingSelfie. It’s no surprise that the trend started with teens, but it has quickly become popular with grown-ups, too. I can admit that some of these shots are exciting and artistic. I can’t, however, believe that indulging your creative impulses is the best use of your time while driving. Come on, folks! Let’s start a #SafelyParkedInMyDriveaySelfie trend shall we?
Ducks & Dice
Extra points for getting the swinging fuzzy dice in the shot, but now it’s time to wipe off that duck face, sit up straight, and put your hands at 10 and 2.
Man’s Best Friend Puts up with a Lot
This cute guy is having a blast, but his doggie doesn’t look so thrilled. Please take that sweet baby to the dog park. This pooch needs to unwind!
Rockin’ Down the Highway
Hold on. If one hand is taking a selfie, and the other hand is hangin’ loose, who’s driving the car?!
Very clever, taking a selfie through your steering wheel. Might be a good time to look up, though. I’m sure there’s a red light or a yield sign somewhere up there.
Look Ma, No Hands!
Please tell us you’re steering with your thighs, and that you at least have eyes in the side of your head. Please??
Sunshine on her shoulders makes her happy. Her favorite song is on the radio. Her hair is windswept. Her chances of getting in an accident just doubled.
Motorcycle Selfies, Naturally
Because taking a selfie while driving a car is a big yawn.
Into the Wild
What a great shot -- the sunrise, the open road. Okay, that’s enough. Save your phone battery for the pictures you’ll take of your lunch.
Born to Be Wild
Let me get this straight. You’re driving your bike with one hand and no helmet? You know what? I’m telling your mom.
Airplane Pilot Selfies?!
She’s not really... she didn’t just... Well, there’s yet another reason I’m afraid of small planes.
Mile High Smug
I bet this guy has jokes for days. Like the time he flew a plane, single-handedly, while breaking the Internet record for Most Selfies Taken Above 10,000 Feet.
Too Cool for Traffic
It’s super how your hair, sunglasses, clothes, car interior, and gloomy soul are all matchy-matchy, but get your arm back in the car. And put your seatbelt on, mister!
