This recent video posted by a Belgium group called Responsible Young Drivers is one of the most sobering looks at the dangers of texting while driving. Teens were given the task of texting random messages while piloting a car around a road course, and you can guess what the outcome was. The scariest part about this video is the fact that drivers like this are out on public roads in droves, terrorizing the motorist population.
But the video proves one crucial point, and that’s the fact that it’s impossible to text and drive at the same time. It’s because of this that I have absolutely no compassion for anyone who kills or injures themselves while texting behind the wheel. Happy driving!
