Texting and driving is so 2013. The hot new trend is VANITY while driving.
According to a new survey, one in 14 people admit they've taken a SELFIE while driving. And for people 18 to 24, it's even MORE common, at one in nine.
People 18 to 24 are also twice as likely to use social media while driving.
There's no data on how many ACCIDENTS people have caused by taking selfies while driving . . . but there's something pretty sad about the idea of your duck face hitting Instagram two seconds before you DIE in a crash.
And while we're talking about VANITY . . . plastic surgery spending in the U.S. was up 12% in 2013, to over $12 billion dollars. That's as much as we were spending before the recession in 2008.
The most common plastic surgeries were liposuction, breast augmentations, eyelid surgery, tummy tucks, and nose jobs. (Daily Mail / PR Newswire)
