Dying to Text

I was watching an educational video yesterday that was produced in Wales. It depicted three young teenage girls riding in a car and the driver was texting.

Of course the driver’s attention was distracted and an accident occurred. The ensuing damage and injuries were extremely life-like. Heads banged off and through car windows and there was a lot of blood.

Some people appeared to criticize the video for being too graphic. Real life is graphic. It’s a fact that a teenager’s attention can be distracted by as much as 35%when texting and driving.

If the sight of heads banging off windows and blood offends anyone, then it would appear that the producers got it right. Many people have to be literally shocked in order to take notice.

Interestingly, everyone who was interviewed after watching the video said they would not text and drive again. Maybe that is the answer. Maybe we need to see a lot more shocking videos in order to make us change our ways.
