Texting PSA Shows True Danger of Texting while Driving, High Risk of Auto Accidents

A new British public service announcement is gaining international media attention because of its graphic nature: however, it is also drawing attention to the fact that texting while driving is extraordinarily dangerous and puts many lives at risk when drivers turn their attention from the road to their cellphones.

The PSA shows three teenage girls driving down the road, giggling and having a great time. As one girl is shown texting while driving, she veers into the other lane and causes a major accident. She looks over at her friend, dazed, only to see a third car approaching the accident and violently crashing into them. The result is a realistic video with plenty of blood, smashing cars, breaking bones, death andthe reality of the danger that is texting while driving.

You can view the video here on YouTube. Before watching, be warned: this video is graphic and visually disturbing.
