Our reporter, who was driving in a traffic jam along the Wisłostrada, came across the driver absorbed in reading. As he reports, the car was in motion all the time, and the man driving it maneuvered without taking his eyes off the book.
The irresponsible behavior of one of the drivers was recorded by a camera in the car of the tvnwarszawa.pl reporter Artur Węgrzynowicz, who reports on accidents, collisions and hits that occur every day on the streets of our city.
“He did not take his eyes off the book”
– I noticed this driver on Monday around 1.30 pm on Wioślarska street on the road towards Żoliborz. Traditionally, a traffic jam is created at this point when approaching the intersection with Ludna. The first thing I noticed was a book on the steering wheel. The second thing that caught my attention was the fact that the driver did not take his eyes off her. At that time, his car was on the move almost all the time. The driver was adding gas and braking all the time looking at the book – reports Węgrzynowicz.
As our reporter added, this situation lasted the entire length of the traffic jam. – Even in a situation when cars passed by policemen who were settling a road collision – Węgrzynowicz said.
– I hope the driver has reached his destination safely. And when he reads this, he will understand that there are more suitable places to read books. It was a very dangerous behavior, he concluded.
We asked the Warsaw Police Headquarters to evaluate the behavior of this driver. We also asked the officers about the legal consequences for this type of offense. We are waiting for answer.
