Texting while driving -- A video everyone must see

I'm guilty of texting while driving, and wow this video made me shit bricks.
Figured it be something everyone should see.
It's a bit on the NSFW side, but I'm at work and I watched it so its not THAT bad.

I have never texted while driving, just not coordinated enough.

Do not delete this, everyone needs to see this.

I have never texted and I do not use a cell phone while driving either.

If this does not make you stop, something is seriously wrong with you.

If my cell phone rings I do not ever answer it until I am stopped or pull over in a parking lot. Besides they can always leave a message.

THis video makes me think of my sister, because she does this and I nag her about it all the time.

It's not an aquired skill, it's just plain stupid.

Morons and people who lack common sense should not be allowed on the road... I mean I'd help them, but I don't feel sorry for them.

my mom saw a study about it. You have like 40% less reaction time while texting, i think driving while drunk is 18%.

Re: Texting while driving -- A video everyone must see

to be fair drunk driving affects a lot more than reaction time, like judgement and such as well. Texting is just a distraction, you dont have your focus where it should be. If its that important pull over/get off the highway and stop safely.
