Would you want your teen to see this?

Okay when I was in Drivers ED we saw some pretty desturbing images of accidents we even talked to a heli vac worker about her experiences. They scared me Sh ! tless! no lie! I never sped till I was well over 18. This Video is VERY graphic! But would you show it to your teen to warn them about texting while driving?

The link WARNING VERY GRAPHIC!

  • Yes, I would rather them be disturbed by some images and see REALITY....than be careless and stupid and hurt themselves or others.....

  • Yes I would. Kids think they're invincible and they need a good ole dose of reality now and then.  I think it's pretty powerful and is a good way to drive home the seriousness and dangers of texting while driving.

  • I've seen it and yes I would want my teen to see it. After all , I would rather they [our children] were mortified than memorialized.

  • Yes.....I would show them. WILL in fact. I have also shown them some very graphic pics sent of a man killed while texting. They need to be informed. Agree with the mom above, I would much rather they be mortified than memorialized.

  • Yes I would show it to them, I would rather they get the message in a video then have it happen to them.
