@Fehz, it wouldn`t be a very good ad if she noticed and swerved back into her lane... For it to work well it`d have to be pretty shocking, and I think they pick the right level.
But, that aside, who is that bad of a driver to veer off of the road on a straight away? I mean come on. I consider myself an average driver and even I could avoid that accident.
In addition, yeah the "mommy, daddy wake up." was some of the worst acting I`ve ever seen.
That car could easily have taken out his own phone, twittered "I just saw a car accident!", switched to camara mode, and still have time to come to a nice easy stop and take some pictures.
DEAD PARENTS LOLOLOL
And get off my lawn...
Thats why predictive texting...saves lives
not really as ya said the tire blowed out as he was overtaking...he didnt know it popped until the drater hit him
P.S. Heddlu= Welsh Police.
Joking aside, good video.
The only thing is, I couldn`t work out where I know the guy in the blue shirt from. I know he`s in a soap but I can`t work out which one. It`s really annoying me now.
Well spotted. I reviewed the video, and you`re right...no blood!
I`m thinking this whole thing was probably staged by the government in an attempt to bring the cellular carriers in line with their tyrannical tax policies.
Like I said to Brown Sugar, I hope some one kills you before you kill some one less worthless than you. You have no right to live if you don`t respect the lives of others.
@TKD Master: I realize people are going to continue to do terribly irresponsible things no matter how dangerous they are, but I urge you to reconsider. Maybe you`ll be the only one in critical condition in your car, but what about the passengers in the car(s) you may slam into? Also, you don`t want the tickets. In some states texting while driving is now a felony.
Hell yeah man, that`s how we roll in the UK.
and is there REALLY a need for two helis?
Though sad, we need more things like this, that way self-important idiots will see that it`s not going to matter who has a crush on who if you`re crushed.
I`m tired, okay?
Also, in the cut to the collision, one car is stationary, WTF?
Lol`d. It`s resuscitate.
And in the states, even if the person has the words "Do not resperate" tattooed on their chest, the paramedics are still required to give you medical attention and to keep you alive as long as possible, any way possible. Your unconsciousness automatically gives them permission to work on you.
If you don`t like it keep it to yourself. This is a serious issue all over the world.
The baby made me cry a little :`(
A. It`s unlikely someone would sue you for checking his or her pulse without his or her permission.
B. I was mainly talking about the paramedics. Maybe I missed it, but I didn`t see ONE paramedic check anyone`s pulse.
I almost got hit by a car just a few days ago cause the 3 girls all had cell phones in their hands and 2 of them were obviously texting. Freaking idiots.
I kid, I kid!!!
Fear-mongering is always required when a tyrannical government has created a generation with no responsibility. *sigh*
So apparently everyone whose died as a result of texting are just stupid people and you`re better than them? If you were smart in any way, you wouldn`t be texting while driving to begin with.I don`t really care if you die. I hope you do, you deserve it for being stupid. But chances are you`ll take innocent people down with you, and you don`t have that right just because you`re addicted to texting. I hope some one manages to kill you first before you kill some one who isn`t as worthless as you.
This was pretty drated up though.
This should be required viewing in all driving schools everywhere.
That was a short film with no plot.
And honestly, I would have done it better with nudity and zombies and maybe even some guns.
You`ve obviously never seen or been in a real accident.
Thats the way all the adverts like that are made over here. Pretty gross.
Why do they get straps with their head chocks and I have to use duct tape?
i cant do that either - i thought i was the only one
I want to see you die.
I don`t text while driving and I walked away from the video. It`s uncomfortable and it really wouldn`t make me want to stop doing something because its so long, more so it makes me want to get into the accident just to stop the discomfort. a PSA shouldn`t be so long, you loose interest and the point is moot.
I admire the attempt they made at showcasing why you shouldn`t text, it holds a powerful message. But it really didn`t need to be so long. They could have cut out a lot and still gotten the same message accross without using up 4 minutes, but more like 130.. or even 45 seconds. Short. Sweet. And to the point.
I don`t think so, there are limitations in some states but no outright bans unfortunately. It should be though considering you`re four times more likely to get in an accident if you`re talking on your cellphone, and that`s just talking. I can`t even imagine what it is for texting..
I feel dysfunctional.
Unfortunately, it`s morons like Madest with REALLY short attention spans that do that stupid crap.
The problem is, it IS long, so the people that actually bother watching it all the way through probably don`t text and drive as is.
The people who walk out to grab a soda, or just fast foreward through this, are the ones likely to do this sh*t.
And the world is cultivating a generation of those morons who will just fast foreward through it on their DVR, or (ironically enough) text until the PSA`s over.
ALSO, I remember there being a controverst over a whole bunch of people thinking this was "too graphic."
Well, f*cktards, you`re not gonna get people to stop doing something with a bunch of bunnies flying out and cuddling them when they do it, now are you?
also if anything the other car was at fault too. that girl was straying across teh road a full 10 secs before he hit her. reaction tme is less tahn a second. he could have easily swerved to avoid her, pulled over and called 999.
and the story of the guy that got mauled by a HGV while on a phone, there was no way he could avoid a 10 ton lorry, who burt a tire from swerving into him and making a pancake outa his ass, even if he was alert and sure as hell not if he wasnt in a supercar...
im sorry for ya loss but dont go blaming the text he sent.
I just don`t understand why ANYONE would text while driving... TALKING on the phone is distracting enough.
Graphic and heart-wrenching, but if it makes someone who texts while they`re behind the wheel think twice, then please give us more of this.
Related: Didn`t they just pass a law on Sept. 1 making it illegal if you`re under the age of 18 to talk on a cellphone and drive? My government teacher was telling us about it.
Anything that raises awareness about these possibilities in such a effective manner should be respected.
Oh, Madest, 4 minutes is really not that long, if it makes a few people think again about texting whilst driving then i couldn`t care less that you found it boring.
Imjesus, the point of the PSA isn`t to say that texting is the only cause of this kind of accident; why on earth would you think it is, and why would that even be important?
The message is that texting can, and does, lead to this kind of accident, and is one of the easily-avoidable causes. Duh, of COURSE not all texting causes this kind of accident, but it can, and this PSA shows the very real aftermath it can cause.
The point? Showing people that their "harmless" distractions can have very, very serious consequences, very quickly; ten seconds of distraction, followed by a lifetime of agony and regret...at least for the survivors. THAT is the point; that texting while driving is a SERIOUS danger, and shouldn`t be taken lightly.
And knowing is half the battle.
Someone without the attention span of a gnat perhaps?
Watching it closely, I can`t figure out the course of events; the third car in the accident, the red one, seems to be driving on the wrong side of the road, and the small blue one seen passing at 0.38 also seems to be driving on the right hand side.
I still see people using their phones to their ear or texting when they drive - I try to stay away from them.
What are you trying to say here, help me out, you got CAPS LOCK VIRUS?
But, WTF was with the Tom Jones thing?!
my favorite psa was one where the driver was drunk and drove through the garden fence and ran over a little kid who was playing soccer with his sister. because that happens a lot.
It wasn`t funny to begin with
Now that I`ve embarassed someone over the internet, I saw this in driver`s ed just last week.
Oh, Imjesus. Let`s see you drive while texting, okay? From what I know you`re in the age range 13-17, so you`re probably 13 and THINK you can text and drive. You can`t. When you go through driver`s ed, you`ll learn.
"Why won`t mommy and daddy wake up"
This is the equivalent of those commercials asking for donations to the humane society and showing a beaten dog with puppy eyes staring helplessly at the screen. It might work, but it`s still a crock of poo. Not all dogs are cute. Not all texting causes horrifying traffic accidents.
Apparently the crash happened on Highway Ironic.Couldn`t stop laughing through the whole thing, thanks for the pick me up IAB.
I`m scared to leave the house now....... :(
I love Living here :DAlso there are some shorter ones around which cover more subjects, really gruesome stuff!
That was an exceptional video, i really thought so.
@Hansbo, I`m afraid they do,yeah. My friend does it and I hate it.I`m gonna show him this video.
That is so stupid I can`t even imagine people doing that. Seriously. It`s like reading a bloody book while driving.
And now I`m depressed :(
WOMAN DRIVER!!!, soz, had to.
And yeah. This PSA is one of the better ones in terms of showing how real the danger is. I agree that even though it`s graphic, this is something that should definitely be shown in driving school.
