In a world where distracted driving has become a growing concern, an image has surfaced on social media that serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers that await those who take their eyes off the road. The picture, titled "Please Don't Ask Them to do this While They are Driving," captures the aftermath of a devastating accident that occurred due to a momentary lapse in attention.

The image showcases a dark-colored car, its right side exposed to the viewer. The passenger side of the vehicle bears the brunt of the impact, with the metal body crushed and crumpled, rendering both the front and rear doors almost indistinguishable from one another. Shattered glass from the windows litters the scene, and the right front wheel juts out at an unnatural angle, its tire deflated. It's evident that the car's suspension and axle have suffered severe damage as well, leaving no doubt about the severity of the collision.

However, what makes this image particularly poignant is the presence of a sticker on the rear passenger side door that reads, "Close your eyes and I'll kiss you." The irony of this message, juxtaposed against the violent wreckage of the vehicle, serves as a grim reminder of the devastating consequences of distracted driving. It's a stark contrast between the love and affection symbolized by the sticker and the harsh reality of the accident.

The background of the image offers a glimpse into the surroundings in which this tragic event unfolded. A stretch of road is visible, along with a segment of an overpass or bridge, indicating that the accident likely occurred on or near a busy highway. The angled position of the car suggests that it has been hooked up to a towing mechanism, as part of the recovery efforts following the collision.

The image has struck a chord with social media users, who have expressed their thoughts and reactions. One user commented, "Tomorrow, I'll miss you.... quite appropriate," alluding to the potential consequences of distracted driving. Another user humorously remarked, "Is this Uber's new tag line?" highlighting the importance of staying focused while behind the wheel.

This image serves as a powerful reminder of the dangers of distracted driving. It's a stark visual representation of the potential consequences that can arise from a momentary lapse in attention. Let it be a wake-up call for all of us to prioritize safety on the roads and keep our eyes on the task at hand. Remember, it only takes a split second for tragedy to strike. Don't let your loved ones become victims of distracted driving. Stay alert, stay focused, and arrive at your destination safely.

They only thing that would've made that picture more perfect is if it had been a Beetle.

"Close your eyes, and I'll kiss you..." - The Grim Reaper All s*** aside, this is very fitting to my life. For several years I had to travel out of town for work, 100 miles one way (almost 2 hrs driving time). I used to wake up at 2am to make it to the yard and spare some time to sleep before my start time (6am). The traffic at that time, on my way to work, was minimum for most of my travel. It was always on the quieter part of the road (about 10 to 15 miles) before my destination that I started feeling tired. Many times I would catch myself from driving into the divider after realizing I have closed my eyes for a super short period of time, and drove while dreaming I was awake. There were times where I had to pull over and take a 10 minutes nap, then continue. This phrase immediately took me back to those dark moments of my life. So, "Don't close your eyes, 'cause you'll get kissed!"
