Graphic Videos Hope To Scare Distracted Drivers [VIDEO]

New videos are out from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Traffic Safety Administration Agency. The agency is getting aggressive in their campaign to end distracted driving especially among teens. Many are saying the videos are just too graphic.

Almost 412,000 drivers were injured in automobile accidents that involved distracted drivers according to Driving distractions include texting, looking at the GPS, fooling with the radio, eating, grooming and interacting with other passengers in the vehicle.

Texting remains a big problem especially with teens. Almost 30% of teens respond to a text at least once every time they drive, according to a recent survey form the University of Michigan Transportation Research.

I’m constantly reminding my son Josh the dangers of texting and driving. He assures me that he wont, but that doesn’t stop me from worrying about him.

Here’s the disturbing 30-second video that is meant to scare the pants off anyone who still texts while they drive. The video is clearly aimed at teens, but it can also be a harsh reminder for adults.Tell us what you think.
