  • No video is going to make a difference, too many people think they are invincible and nothing will happen to them, especially teenagers. In my state, texting while driving is illegal and you can get a fine between $25-400 the first offense and it goes up each time after that. It is a primary offense, meaning that the cops can pull you over for texting.

  • No it won't some people out there just don't give a damn. They think what they are doing is harmless. They think accidents will never happen to them. It's sad but true. They need to make some device in a car where cell phones automatically stop working when the car turns on unless an emergency call is made.

  • OK, I'm not watching it because I'm guessing it's some pretty gruesome accidents. Can't handle it.


    But No I don't think it will make a difference because teens think they are invincible. Unfortunately, I see people texting and driving ON THE FREEWAY all the time. It's really scary to see them weave in and out of their lane and then pass them and see the phone in their hands.

  • Videos won't do anything; parents keeping cell phones away from their teens (especially if the parents are paying for it). OR make texting on their phones unavailable.
