It may be illegal (and dangerous) to use your phone as well as watch a movie while driving, but that hasn't stopped people from doing both. Though everyone has, at one point or another, used their phone while driving to send a text message, answer a phone call, or pull up directions, not many people have watched a movie through their navigation systems/dashboard screens. It just seems… illogical, though it's happened before (and probably will happen again). But before you think about binging Lord of the Rings on your next road trip, read the following story.
In July 2016, 40-year old Joshua Brown became the first person to be killed driving a self-driving car. How? Due to the bright sun, Brown's Tesla Model S failed to notice an oncoming truck, and since he was watching Harry Potter using a DVD player, he didn't see the truck either. Brown's friends referred to him as a "daredevil," and local police confirmed as much by revealing that he had received eight speeding tickets over the past few years. It's worth noting that Brown was watching the film on a separate device because Tesla says it's impossible to watch a film in their car—at least using onboard options.
