Video: Belgian PSA Shows How Bad it is to Text While Driving

We all know that a driver shouldn’t be texting while he or she is driving.  Then, some of us do it anyway.  While many states are making it illegal to be texting while driving, it’s still commonplace to see drivers tapping away, completely oblivious to their surroundings.  This practice is infuriating to those of us who actually place some priority on proper driving, since it leads to accidents and backups.  Now, the Responsible Young Drivers (RYD) Belgium has produced the video after the jump, in which it requires teen drivers to pass a “mobile phone test” while driving, in which the instructor dictates a sentence the young driver must text, all while driving on a closed course.  Other than the instructor not wearing a seatbelt in all cases, I think it’s a great way to show people just how much their distraction is affecting their driving.
