Today, I was driving in stop and go traffic and passed two accidents in the process. I got nervous and decided to change routes to avoid getting hit. As I was trying to find an alternative route on my GPS, I rear-ended the car in front of me. FML

gps systems are just plain evil... eyes on the road OP.

no they're not!! they are great, as long as you set it before you leave. and most of them re-route automatically.

recalculating!

isn't there a saying that shit always happens in threes?? well there is now

Turn left here. Recalculating. TURN RIGHT NOW!

That is what you get for using gps while driving!

Nice. I bet when u rear ended the car the GPS said "new route found" in it's little robotic voice

2 no right after OP rear-ended the car it said "recalculating" in that British demonic voice -.-

I blame the car in front clearly they knew you were busy with your gps but still stopped anyway

Sounds like the same cheating English bitch that confuses me in traffic. No more GPS dreams 4 me ...

Wow. thats kind of smart. you dont know the streets that well? jw. gps dont do well for almost anyone. it took me in circles around tacoma an seattle. i hate them.

Just because they rear end someone (on ACCIDENT) doesn't necessarily make them an idiot. Accidents happen.

Accidents happen when you look at your phone or your GPS instead of paying attention to the road.

lol ur gay

How is he gay? He's re's right, people are idiots and try to multitask and cause traffic jams. It's annoying

Accidents like this don't just happen, #8. Terrible drivers cause them. A non-idiotic, good driver would not be this distracted on the road full stop.

Foe, accidents like this DO just happen...to idiots who drive while smoking and talking on the phone and changing the radio station and searching for an alternate route on their GPS so they can shave 2 minutes off their commute. Fucking imbeciles. Put the gadgets down and DRIVE, goddamned twits. You're behind the wheel of a 2000 kg weapon. Remember that.

Apparently, the rate of accidents have actually remained the same, but now people crash for different reasons...like being an idiot and staring at your gps as if you're suddenly a ghost and can pass through solid objects.

Fun fact: they actually make hair straighteners (flat irons) that PLUG IN TO THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER. The cigarette lighter! In case you're running late?! Are you kidding me?!?! I saw them when I was shopping for new products to stock at the family salon... It is so ridiculous, these things can WAIT; that text is not going to disappear, your phone will not explode, the GPS will auto-reroute, and for God's sake, you can have curly/messy hair for a day. That's what ponytails are for. Gosh. =]

Edit: I know that there is a possibility that a passenger could be the one using it, but it didn't look that's who it was marketed towards. And, really? Is it THAT necessary? That's a mild distraction for the driver in itself, someone with defrizzing spray, with her arms moving all over the place, obstructing the view out of the passenger window.. I just wish people would stop trying to multitask so much. Driving is dangerous enough as it is; even if you're a good driver, you should be prepared that everyone else on the road is an idiot.

Maybe you should upgrade to a newer one if you can so that it recalculates automatically. Also, you should never be focusing on your gps while driving, especially in high density traffic.

Your name should be dumbfuck, not dumbluck.

Agreed. Luck had nothing to do with the collision. OP, you're an idiot. Either you were actually messing with the GPS while in motion or you can't keep your foot on the brake when distracted. Y completely DI and F the L of the person you hit.

Today, I left late for work, got stuck in friggin' traffic on my way, AND some twat rear-ended me fiddling with his/her GPS. FML.

I agree, your life sucks.

you must live in South Florida

oh.my.gosh. south Florida drivers are absolutely horrible! the worst ever.
