Intense New Commercial Against Texting and Driving


The U.S Department of Transportation has amped up its admonitions against texting and driving by creating a new commercial graphically depicting the dangers of such activity.  Here's a link to an article on the Ad along with a link to the commercial.  The Ad depicts teenagers in a vehicle in which the driver blows a stop sign while being distracted by texting and the vehicle is smashed by another oncoming vehicle in a T-bone fashion:

  1. Glad to see more PSA s being directed at this issue. While just about every state has made it illegal (in some form or fashion) to text and drive, enforcement remains difficult. Catching someone in the act is easier said than done. Intense public education and positive "peer pressure" to stop this dangerous practice may be more effective!
