    Default texting while driving

    Heres an advert about the dangers of texting while driving, rather hard hitting.



    I wonder if this driver was texting.

    ...and I really mean that! We all are guilty of funking about at times when on the road whether we have the stones to admit it or not. But I do have younger mates who STILL insist on no seat-belts, texting and phone stuck to ear.. Boils my **** as when I tell them to belt up etc all I get is Kevin & Perry style mumblings..

    I just wish adverts like this would have the effect on people like them as it does on me!

    I think its having kids that makes me think oohh

    Seeing the babies eyes in that vid... i instantly think of my own kids... and i serioussly start to get emotional.... like its my own child im looking at..

    ... will it ever have any effect on those ppl who dont have a care in the world and who are to stuck up their own backside to even think ... wait a minute i may not be just a good a driver as i think i am etc etc....

    every bit as bad as drink drivers. texters/phoners are killers on the roads, and should be banned for doing so just like drink drivers. immediately.

    texting should definitely be clamped down on.

    However if you can't hold a phone call and drive at the same time, you shouldn't be behind the wheel at all....

    it's illegal to use the regular phones too, 3 points on the licence. hands free ok, but the killers who have the phone held up to their ear while driving deserve all the penalties they get.
