It is pretty gory but i would show it to my TEEN when they start driving. you can talk and talk about how dangerous it is but sometimes teenagers do NOT HEAR you. I think seeing the results of what can happen will help them grasp the actual ramifications.

Yes.  Absolutely.  I showed it to my 14 1/2 yo avid texter last night, actually.  His mouth just dropped, all he could say was "all that from a text?"  I think all drivers and soon to be drivers should see it.

Without a doubt I'd show this to my kids and go even a step further, and show a few adults I know, who text while driving. It's a PSA that desperately needs to be seen. 

....yeah? and?

Yes I did, she just turned 16... I wish I could show her pictures of the fatality wrecks we work...
