  • Texting While Driving PSA (Warning: Graphic)

    Put together by Peter Watkins-Hughes (an ex-BBC producer), this is a shocking and graphic PSA regarding texting while driving. While it may be hard to watch, it reminds us of the responsibility we have when we're behind the wheel. This is a clip of the longer 30-minute presentation.

    I definitely think it is worth a watch, and although it is entirely staged, it is quite graphic and realistic.

      Got to one minute.....that was enough of that. Don't text while driving anyways.

      it's what they are like in their HEART!

          At the very least, it's illegal in California. Most people still don't know that but yes, you are breaking the law when doing it as of June 1 of this year and law enforcement is allowed to make a traffic stop for this traffic violation. At the very most, see video above.

          I still see people talking on their cell phones without a hands-free device, which is against the law here in California as well. Drivers under 18 are not even allowed to operate a cell phone while driving at all, unless making a 911 call.

          So unless you have some sort of hands-free device, DO NOT USE YOUR CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING!!! I use the roads too and I want to be safe.

          EDIT: And if you think that PSA is graphic, then you don't even want to know about the real thing. That video above is all Hollywood make up and whatnot. Think about a 2 ton car against our soft human frame and you get an idea of what could really happen. People need to take driving more seriously. There are too many careless drivers out there, too many.

              i understand the message that is to be conveyed, and i feel it does a pretty good job of doing it.

              but i remember my first time watching the video, i thought it was a joke/spoof off of the movie "Death Proof" because the collection of some bad camera angles/music playing/etc. didn't take long to realize this was a very serious ad though.

                the part that got me the most was the baby scene. Really people need to just leave their phones in the glove box on silent and just return calls when they get to their destination. Sad sad sad.

                      Isn't it gut wrenching? And yeah, that's Hollywood. The real situation would be many times worse.

                      Makes you realize too, that not only do you not need to be on your phone while driving, but you need to be a very defensive driver and be on the lookout for those who are being careless and putting your life at risk.

                          Holy crap that was shocking.

                          I could barely get through it.

                            How terrible. And to think that one persons error could cost multiple people their lives is so difficult to swallow.

                              I think every high school should show this. It not only the people in your car but others who can lose their lives too. The little girl just got me. That's why I hate driving. You never know who's drunk or not paying attention.
