Because Kendall Jenner is a teenager, we're going to take a moment to lecture her about her dangerous driving habits.
For the second time in as many months, the 16-year-old reality star and model was spotted driving recklessly on a Los Angeles freeway -- texting while at the wheel and swerving across the road, reports RadarOnline.
Beyond just being dangerous, it's also been illegal in California to text while operating a vehicle since January 2009, and drivers under the age of 18 aren't even allowed to use a cellphone with a hands-free device -- which means there is no excuse for Jenner, and photos obtained by the website show that she appears to be concentrating on her iPhone, rather than the road.
More worrisome is that this is the second time Jenner has been spotted driving dangerously, which is not the best way to say "thank you" for the $90,000 Range Rover given to her by her parents Bruce and Kris Jenner, for her 16th birthday.
According to a witness driving on the 405 freeway in the Calabasas area (where the Jenners live), the witness noticed Jenner's Range Rover in the other lane, and became alarmed when Jenner's car started "dangerously drifting" into the other lane.
“When I glanced through my car window, I saw that Kendall Jenner was driving the other vehicle, but she wasn’t looking at the road, her eyes were fixed on her cell phone!" the driver told RadarOnline. “In fear she would crash into me, I sounded my horn and Kendall looked across, but she appeared unfazed. I made some signals to her to get off the phone, but she just sped off.
The witness claims that a few minutes later she caught up with the teen and could see that she was still texting while behind the wheel. The driver alleges that Kendall "was swerving in her lane, from one side to the next, and she wasn’t paying attention to other drivers."
We could chalk this up to a teenage mistake, but in August another driver claimed they were "nearly sideswiped" by Jenner's Range Rover, and "thought the driver was intoxicated" because of how much she was swerving across the road.
We have to say that we're surprised by Kendall's alleged behavior, given that she's appeared to be more down-to-earth than her superstar sisters, but maybe it's time Kendall's momager, Kris Jenner, revoke her daughter's driving privileges before the police do -- no one wants to be the next Amanda Bynes.
Check out Hollywood's worst celebrity drivers below and be warned: These are the people you're sharing the roads with.
Lindsay Lohan's latest fender bender -- smashing into the back of an 18-wheeler -- is just the latest mark on her less than stellar driving record. In July 2011, Lohan was involved in an alleged hit-and-run, though charges were never filed. Perhaps it's time for <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/liz-smith/lindsay-lohan-should-not-drive-liz-smith_b_1589293.html?utm_hp_ref=celebrity" target="_hplink">Lohan to hire a driver?</a> Lindsay's latest string of traffic busts comes after her 2007 DUI arrest.
Although this former Nickelodeon star claims she doesn't drink, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/06/amanda-bynes-charged-dui-barack-obama_n_1573423.html" target="_hplink">Amanda Bynes was charged with DUI</a> after she side-swiped a cop car in early April. But the actress' poor judgement doesn't stop there. Just days later, Bynes was involved in an alleged hit-and-run, although no charges have been filed.
Charlie Sheen may not necessarily be a bad driver, but he doesn't have great luck when it comes to his four-wheel friends. In 2010, one of Charlie's vehicles was found at the bottom of a cliff and <a href="http://www.tmz.com/2010/06/15/charlie-sheen-car-over-a-cliff-hollywood-hills-stolen/" target="_hplink">not four months later the <em>same</em> thing happened again</a>! Both times the vehicles appeared to have been stolen and rolled to their rocky demise.
Although we can partially blame this one on the hounding paparazzi, January Jones might consider enrolling in a few driving obstacle courses. While being chased by photographers in West Hollywood, the actress lost control of her vehicle, colliding with three parked cars in the process.
LeAnn Rimes wasn't the luckiest of gals in 2009. After a minor car crash in August of that year, just a month later the singer was trying to escape shutter-happy photographers by stepping on the gas (are we sensing a pattern here?) -- <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20305599,00.html" target="_hplink">too bad she accelerated into the car in front of her</a>.
She certainly isn't going to earn any "Mother of the Year" awards <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1157153,00.html" target="_hplink">after infamously driving with her baby on her lap in 2006</a>, and it appears she's also a black sheep when it comes to the rules of the road. Spears reportedly left her car unattended in the middle of a road after getting a flat tire in 2009. The singer has also been "charged with a hit and run, driving without a valid license, and was under fire as well for running over a paparazzo's foot," <a href="http://www.thedailybeast.com/galleries/2010/07/07/worst-celebrity-drivers.html#slide7" target="_hplink">according to The Daily Beast</a>.
There's only one way Enrique Iglesias could ever turn <em>off</em> a fan -- by running over their foot with his car! That's exactly what the singer did after a 2007 concert. Iglesias' vehicle (his manager was driving) was swarmed by fans after his concert and, in attempt to evade the crowd, the pair accidentally ran over an 11-year-old girl's foot.
Nicole Richie's drug-induced state of mind had her driving down the wrong side of the freeway (!!!) in 2006. But since then, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/10/party-girls-to-momtrepreneurs-celebrity-moms-cash-in-on-motherhood_n_1507275.html" target="_hplink">Richie has gone from wild child to "momtrepreneur</a>."
You'd think that a two-year driving ban might might make you crack open your "Rules of the Road" handbook, but that's not the case when it comes to George Michael. The singer had his license revoked in 2007 after driving under the influence of drugs. And three years later, Michael <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/06/george-michael-crashes-ca_n_636025.html" target="_hplink">crashed his Range Rover into the front of a London camera shop</a>.
Billy Joel is among the celebrity set to have more than a few crashes on his record. In 2002 the singer set off a string of collisions. The second accident involved a tree and the third, a house.
Mischa Barton is nears the top of the chart when it comes to worst celebrity drivers. In 2007, <a href="http://www.thehollywoodgossip.com/2007/03/mischa-barton-is-a-bad-actress-and-a-bad-driver/" target="_hplink">she got in a minor fender bender while driving Nicole Richie's car</a> in Los Angeles. Not even a month later, Barton's vehicle stepped into ring with a parking lot gate. When the "O.C." actress caught her bumper on the gate she kept driving, ripping it clear off! Later that year came the ultimate driving no-no. <a href="http://www.tmz.com/2007/12/27/mischa-barton-busted-for-dui/" target="_hplink">Barton was charged with DUI</a> after she was cruising in two lanes at once and failing to use her traffic signals.
