“Around three thousand people a year and rising are killed by people using satnav systems and mobile phones when driving in the UK alone. Please don’t tech and drive. Pull over if you need to interact with a device.”
I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by © Liz Young
“David! The roads more to your right!” Steve gulped.
“What? The satnav said, go left.” David leant to inspect the screen.
‘In 50 yards turn —”
The car mounted the curb
“DAVID! We’re on the bloody path!” Steve yelled.
“Damn it, Steve. I didn’t hear the satnav!”
The car veered between trees. The driver’s wingmirror vanished in an explosion of glass.
David looked up, “Waaaa!”
Steve swore. “Now, will you listen to Maaaaah!”
David stomped the accelerator instead of braking. He corrected too late. The car ploughed through a wall and stopped hanging over a drop.
Steve groaned, “Bloody technology!”
Thanks for reading my friends.
Have a great day!
