Enforce no IRL Streams while driving
In light of current evens, I feel as a streaming service, Mixer should promote not live streaming while driving, This is dangerous not only for the streamer but Driver but other road users via taking the streamers attention away from the road to the chat.
With this, I understand there is 2 sides, some people might stream what they see, almost like a dash cam and not interact with chat at all, or stream in such a way they cant see the chat.
I just feel there should be something in ToS against this.
In the UK using any mobile device is illegal, so streaming while driving in the UK is at least illegal.
Upvoted, I feel like there should be something against this in ToS to reflect the what could happen and show Mixer does not streaming and breaking laws while doing so.
I think so long as IRL streams while driving are done hands-free, whether by mounting the phone like a dash cam, or by having a passenger handle the phone... there's really nothing wrong with this if done responsibly. Not sure that an addition to the ToS is necessary, though.
I agree, I don't believe there is any reason to stream while driving. Not only for the reasons of focus but for the simple fact that accidents happen no matter how focused people are. What happens if there's some horrific accident that is caught on the stream? I can imagine something like that being very traumatic for everyone involved.

Definitely no need of doing ANYTHING on a cell while driving (let alone streaming). This gets my full support!
There is virtually no reason to compromise the focus of driving for the sake of adding content. There is just none. It doesnt matter what gets implemented, impairing someone's ability to focus on the road will eventually lead to accidents. Just as it's an obvious thing that people shouldn't text while driving, streaming should also not be allowed.
