You Saw This Coming of the Day: NY State Launches “Text Stops” to Discourage Texting & Driving
In an effort to dissuade drivers from using the cellphones while driving, a total of 91 “text stops” have been installed across major highways in New York State where motorists can stop the car to send their text messages. The new accommodations come off the heels of a recent crackdown on texting drivers by the law enforcement, which has resulted in over 365% increase in the number of summons and tickets issued since last summer. During a press conference announcing the rest areas, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo added that the state would do everything in its power to combat the threat of distracted drivers, citing heightened penalties and new detection techniques.

Instant Karma of the Day: Google Street View Driver Crashes into a Bus, Tries to Flee, Then Hits Another Bus and a Truck
If you thought a Google Street View vehicle hitting a donkey was reckless, try a triple hit-and-run attempt involving two mini-vans and a truck. Apparently that’s what happened in Bogor, Indonesia yesterday, when a Google Street View driver crashed into multiple cars while trying to flee from the first collision with a mini-van. According to the local officials, it all began when the driver crashed his Subaru hatchback into a public minivan while on the job, but upon arriving at a repair garage nearby to sort out the damage and the cost, the driver panicked and tried to drive away, though he eventually gave up after crashing into a second bus and a parked truck less than two miles away from the scene. While the driver’s name or the total cost of damages remain unknown, the police says the driver was released after sorting out the payments for the vehicles and had he not tried to dodge the initial bill, it would have cost somewhere around 200,000 rupiah, or about $17.

Introducing Video on Instagram

Over the past two and a half years, Instagram has become a community where you can capture and share the world’s moments simply and beautifully. Some moments, however, need more than a static image to come to life. Until now these stories have been missing from Instagram.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera.

You’ll also find that we’ve added thirteen filters built specifically for video so you can keep sharing beautiful content on Instagram. When you post a video, you’ll also be able to select your favorite scene from what you’ve recorded as your cover image so your videos are beautiful even when they’re not playing.

We’re excited to see what the community will bring to video, whether it’s your local cafe showing you just how they made your latte art this morning or an Instagrammer on the other side of the world taking you on a tour of their city, a mother sharing her joys in parenting as her children laugh and play or your favorite athlete taking you behind the scenes.

So what does this mean for your content? Nothing’s different from photos. We’re still committed to making sure you have control over all of your content. Only the people who you let see your photos will be able to see your videos. And as with photos, you own your videos. You can learn more about Video on Instagram—including our new Cinema feature—by visiting the Instagram Help Center.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.
