Texting

WARNING: MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN!

I know that a lot of other bloggers out there have posted this video. But for those of you that have yet to watch it I'm begging you to do so right now. This is the "PSA Texting while Driving U.K. Ad" that will probably never be shown here in the USA because of how graphic it is. After our accident last weekend, after seeing teens/adults texting while they are driving, and now being a very jittery and nervous passenger I'm now posting it on here so that maybe even more will see this. I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure that the person that hit us wasn't texting. But now days you never really know who is and isn't. Sam now really watches other drivers and comments on them while we are driving around. I know that even though Sam wasn't physically hurt in the accident that it did drive home the importance of seat belts and paying close attention to your driving. I hope that it stays with him for a long time. I don't text at all and in fact I don't even have a texting plan on my phone. But some day I may and I'll remember this PSA for sure. If you have a teen or know of an adult that texts while they drive either have them watch this PSA or sit down with them and have a heart to heart.

this brought up quite the conversation between me and the hubby. Thank you for sharing, though maybe I should have waited until AFTER our road trip to watch it!

I haven't seen this before. We don't have texting either, but our kids' friends do. As a parent with 2 teens (and more coming up), thank you.

I saw this on someone else's blog, but I didn't watch it. I'm going to send this to my teen and ask her to pass it to her friends. Scary and very real looking.

WOW! My daughter does not start driving for about a year and a half now but she will be watching this video today! Thank you for posting this. I wish they would air it here in the USA, maybe it would give some people a wake up call!!!
