[b]WARNING:[/b] This video is NOT suitable for children! It is for everyone who drives. Even if you don't text while driving, this video might tempt you to show it to those who do.

Saw it a few days ago. Recommend every teenager on the planet sees it, too! Forget about the parents who are complaining that it is too graphic—just look at half the stuff they see in movies and video games and try to make that argument. A volunteer firefighter friend of mine says that he sees this kind of thing all too often. If you have teens who have cell phones MAKE them watch this video and make sure you are keeping track of what they are doing, when they are using their phones.

As a substitute teacher, I cannot emphasize enough how frustrating it is for these kids to be texting each other during class by reaching in their purses or pockets. And we wonder why so many kids are diagnosed with ADD. Maybe if we teach them to focus at an early age it wouldn't be quite so bad.

Sorry, this is a SUPER hot topic for me.

Richard , excellent video. I seen it here on the internet about 1-1/2 weeks ago. Last pm I watch it on TV. It is real reality. I think this should be also a must seen for children in school.
