There's a campaign in the UK to stop people texting or using phones while driving.
Just stop and it REALLY so urgent to text or call, can't it wait??

    Texting and driving....or being on the phone while driving has become a huge problem just about everywhere......Laws need to become tougher....but people need to become smarter and more responsible......will it happen??? I doubt it! emoticon

    Texting while driving is SO dangerous - and people just don't get it. Even talking on the phones is distracting while driving.

    That is shocking to say the least. But honestly, that's what it takes to get through to people anymore. I thought is was very powerful including the family with the small child. It's not just you that gets hurt... you're endangering more than yourself if you text and drive. It's illegal to do so here in Maryland too. I think a lot of states here in the US are passing the same laws. I'm always amazed at what I've seen going on behind the wheel of cars...

    My DD was so good about not txting in the car for a long time but I think she's getting lax about it- I just emailed her this video- bet she watches it tonight.

    I agree with Mrs.Doyle (below). Thisz should be shown anywhere people who are over 18 are. That's even if they don't drive. Having a cell phone is great. Talking on it or texting is ok. Driving or, for that matter, moving should not be allowed. Period. How many times have you been talking and walking that you have almost been an accident ready to happen.

    It is against the law to be on a cell phone while driving in CT. If you have a ear piece, that is okay. Even that should be against the law. How can you carry on a conversation and concentrate on the road. My friend drives and uses the phone all the time and it gets me angry.

    That was chilling. It should be shown anywhere people over 18 congregate....cinemas, colleges etc.

    **SIGH** My D is a High School Sr. They all theyink they are totally invincible. They just don't THINK about things @ all in terms of death resulting from what they do! Wish it could be shown here, too.

But on the other hand, kids today are so much more sensitized to such things from the violent video games, movies, etc. I sometimes wonder what WILL get through to them. Thanks for sharing.

    Here in NS it is illegal but some still do it, but more and more pull over and stop. Yes they are sometimes in the way but that is better than getting hit by them. Dad and Mum got hit by someone texting one time. They were okay and she didnt even realize how hard she had hit them.

    Oh, Caz! I went through such a range of emotions while watching this!
Wish it would be shown in the US, or at least in the high schools.
