All though the following video was meant to send a message to teenage drivers that are oh so constantly texting and driving, this video also serves as an excellent reason not to tweet while you drive either. With applications like Uber Twitter and Twitterberry for Blackberry and the Twitter apps for iPhone it could not be much easier for people to update their Twitter status right from their cell phone while driving, BAD CALL!
I decided to show the following video to my fourteen year old son after hearing about the video one morning a week or so ago on the MJ Morning Show, a local morning show that I listen to daily on 93.3 FLZ. I will warn you the video is graphic and it does the right thing, it creates awareness and sends a message to those teen drivers or soon to be teen drivers that would never think twice about sending text messages or updating Twitter status.
BEFORE YOU CLICK CONTINUE PLEASE REMEMBER THIS VIDEO IS GRAPHIC IN NATURE!!!
One Reason NOT to Text or Tweet and Drive
I personally think there are a lot more reasons to not send twitter status updates or text messages when you drive, I will also say that prior to watching this video I might have thought twice about texting or tweeting while driving, but I still did it anyway. After watching this video I no longer send status updates or text, I will of course check my messages and respond at the severely long and frequent traffic lights
After watching the video (I hope you watched the entire thing) do you still think that you will find yourself sending Twitter status updates and texting friends while your driving? Leave a comment and share your thoughts, I am curious to see what everyone thinks of this video and if you have any intention on showing it to someone you might be concerned about.
