UK PSA: Don't TxT While Drvng

This PSA, produced by the Gwent (Wales) Police Department and filmmaker Peter Watkins-Hughes illustrates the dangers of texting and driving...or driving and being distracted by anything other than the road and traffic. I'll admit to having driven while distracted in the past: having an iPhone will do that to you. But no more.

The video--this is the 4-minute version, longer versions exist--is shockingly graphic and realistic, and a little manipulative, so be prepared.

Also, the people in it are Welsh, so you'll really have no idea what they're saying. Prepare yourself by listening to a few Tom Jones albums.
