Look at me ma, no hands! (but not speeding)

By Golden-Alpine 20 July 2012 39

no hands driving

Just saw this guy driving down Gungahlin Drive.

That’s right on the phone and eating a pie.

I will give him credit for doing the speed limit when most people speed there.

Note: I was a passenger when I took the photo.

I pictured them up on the dash with a pole on the accelerator (ala Mr Bean style).

They were on a motorcycle. Riding and shaving ain’t as dangerous as it sounds.

People are weird and the speeds are too slow. Make the speed faster their attention doubles

Is it just me, or does he also have a wireless Bluetooth headset in his ear too? Bit hard to tell on my
iPhone.

So he is on two phones (obviously he is brokering a deal between the buyer and seller) while eating his pie.

Definitely winning Charlie Sheen style.

I once drove 80km without touching my steering wheel. In the end, after 45 mins I got thirsty so had to grab the wheel while I leant back to reach into the esky.

You’re not the guy who hit Stephen King are you? That’s exactly what was happening when King was nearly killed. That would make you just perfect! (Sarcasm: I love King’s books.)

Oh how I wish the airbag would deploy as he’s eating it, there’s nothing I would imagine worse than scalding pie filling in one’s eye.

Sauce of mirth

And here we have a wonderfull display of somone who obviosly survived the stupidity of his youth, and decided that his continued living was an opportunity to see how far he could push his luck.

I hope he dosn’t end up like the passenger in Chifley’s commodore, however, I also hope that if he does take himself out one day by continuing to drive like an idiot, that he takes no one else with him!

The difference being that pie-Eater can apparently successfully control his vehicle in the manner illustrated without crashing his car.

I once drove 80km without touching my steering wheel. In the end, after 45 mins I got thirsty so had to grab the wheel while I leant back to reach into the esky.

Really?

Yes, really. Heading South from Albury. Some time in 1990, roughly, before Ivan Milat took all the fun out of driving by scaring all the backpackerettes off the roads permanently

Anyway, moving right along.

I notice he seems to have quite an interesting expression on his face, almoast satified, I think he really does like his food!

I also remember reading something recently about study’s showing eating and driving to be comparable to phone usage while driving, however I’m not sure of the validity.

In all honesty, I have to put my hand up and admit i tend to eat behind the wheel a bit!

Haha what a total penis.

That’s what he’s using to do the steering!
