New Risk to Chicago Drivers: The Selfie

Selfies are pictures taken of oneself and have, in recent years, become increasingly popular. With the advent of Facebook and Instagram, more and more people are taking selfies around Chicago with smartphones, and posting them instantly for friends and family to view. This act is harmless for the most part, but according to a new report, more and more people are taking selfies while driving, significantly increasing the risk of causing serious car accidents.
