Irresponsibility on road: Makeup while driving

Is doing makeup while driving more important than the life of those driving on roads?

I came across a rather shocking scenario while travelling along Al Ittihad road, on a recent morning. On this busy Dubai-Sharjah road, I noticed that a car was not in control. It was being driven by a woman, who was doing her make-up. I noticed that she was continuously doing her make-up from Al Nahda till Al Qusais.

This is dangerous behaviour while driving and can cost somebody’s life. It is a risk to the driver and to others. Please be responsible and drive safe.

    Unfortunately, the below mentioned are the common distractions that Ihave seen: Eating, Drinking, Smoking Midwakh, Mobile use, Make up, Busyplaying with the Radio while at speed on hghways etc. It is sad to seean innocent's life lost due to such trivial pursuits. Please, I hope Ireach out to at least one person reading this and make him/herunderstand to focus on your driving, even if driving comes naturally toyou, do not lose focus even for a second. Thank you.

    This is something seen very often. Some ladies dont even have controlover their vehicles and to make matters worse they put make up and usecell phones for calling and msging purposes while driving which is amajor hazard. The use of cell phones and other distractions such asreading books, newspapers etc while driving and not concentrating on theroad is the major cause of accidents but in the UAE SPEED is mostlyconsidered the number one cause.
