Every year, thousands of people die behind the wheel because they were attempting to text and drive. The majority of those people are under the age of 25. It’s a tragic and senseless epidemic that is sweeping the world. While many campaigns encourage young people to put down their phones, it still hasn’t been enough to deter many. So, a group from Brussels decided to create a PSA so scary, that no young person would ever want to text and drive again.
The concept behind the video is simple. They put a camera in a car and tricked young people who were getting their license into thinking that in order to get their paperwork completed, they had to first pass a texting and driving test. Needless to say, none of the people were able to pass.
The instructor in the car tells them to remember how impossible the task was — and to remember that this time they were only hitting bumpers and cones. If this were on a real road, they could be hitting cars and people.
It is a very scary thought and we hope that everyone who sees this will finally do the right thing and put their phones down. There is no text message that can’t wait.
