Here’s another story that teaches us not to use our phones behind the wheel. Just 10 minutes after getting his license, Mr. Zhang from China drove his car into a river. He swerved off a bridge with no guardrails in the city of Zunyi. He was texting his friends who were congratulating him for passing the test and getting his license.

“While I was driving, I tried to grab my phone and read some messages while two people were in front of me on the bridge,” Zhang said. “I became nervous and turned left suddenly.”

According to Fox News, Mr. Zhang’s car stayed afloat long enough for him to be rescued. A crane later lifted the car from the water.

“Luckily, the car floated for a while. I couldn’t open the driver’s door so I had to kick open the door on the other side. Otherwise, I may never have got out,” he said. The Sun reported that on-lookers helped him out of the water and gave him some dry clothes.

Unilad reported that according to local reports, his car was also newly registered.

While it is unclear if Mr. Zhang will be penalized for the incident, The Sun explained that the maximum punishment for using your phone when driving in China is two points off your license and a 200 Yuan ($28) fine.
