After witnessing the deadly crash in California where a teenager lost control of her car while livestreaming and the accident resulted in the death of her sister, the question arises whether live streaming could pose a similar threat to road safety.
It comes as no secret that distracted driving places the driver and other road users at risk.
According to IOL, comedian, Mondli Mzizi manages to keep his fans entertained whilst being on the road.
Mzizi however said that he had not been live streaming while driving.
“I am always on the road, that’s why I sometimes communicate with my fans by live streaming. But I put my phone on the holder so that I can focus on the road,” he mentioned.
It is clear that motorists need to be further educated about the dangers of engaging in any form of social media while driving.
