I think that gov't has missed the boat a bit on this advertising campaign. Most people are horrified when watching it,
Judith,the video is not a government advertising campaign ! I posted the video on my own.
Under the video its says...............
Kudos Volkswagen. What a brilliant way to communicate how risky it is to use mobile phones while driving.At the end of the video is a message to read too.
Over a decade ago my car was stopped at red traffic light and hit twice in the same accident by the same distracted driver.He stepped on the gas instead on the brakes after he hit my car the first time.He thought my car was moving,he played around with his car stereo when he rear-ended my car,he said he didn't see the brake lights on my car either.To this day I'm in pain caused by the accident.Every day I see people texting or talking on their cellphones.Our statistics are not wrong as far as accidents caused by distracted drivers.I know people who received a ticket for talking on a cellphone,it didn't stop them from talking on their cellphones. When DH had a van he noticed a car swerving all over the road in front of him.When he looked inside the car he saw a woman knitting while driving. No kidding !
