Yes is the short answer.
Of all the new tech “innovations” that are around, the selfie stick is the easiest to hate. It looks stupid and is designed to take narcissistic photos. No wonder they’re being banned in many public places. This video shows what happens when a selfie stick is used in a car. Granted it also shows what happens when a tire blows at speed, but that’s secondary. (Focus on the selfie stick, damn it!) Yes, the driver isn’t holding the stick but the fact it’s floating around the cabin is distracting enough.
Fortunately no one is hurt in this video. Kids, if you must use a selfie stick leave it in the trunk while driving.
