I was on CNN this morning discussing the comments of the Pennsylvania judge on the assaulting of an atheist. On the way back, the CNN driver took I-66 and we passed this scene of a woman drinking coffee and reading her Nook . . . while moving over fifty miles an hour during rush hour.
We could not believe our eyes so the driver pulled along side while I took a couple of pictures. Even when we passed an accident with a trooper at the scene, the woman barely looked up from her electronic book. This went on for thirty minutes as we drove along on 66. It was truly unbelievable, particularly since traffic would stop and then speed up with the rush hour traffic. We were amazed that she did not hit anyone because she barely glanced up and seemed totally engrossed in the book. Unfortunately, traveling down a highway, my cellphone did not allow for a particularly good picture. At one point, she briefly took her hand off the wheel to both drink and read. Notably, the CNN driver said that recently he was behind a wreck after a woman plowed into a car while doing her makeup. This woman, however, topped even my prior sighting of a guy talking on the cellphone and eating at the same time while driving. At least he was looking up.
