Texting While Driving

Texting and Driving Don’t Mix

You know by now that texting while driving is dangerous. You see it on the highways and streets daily. The Tredegar Comprehensive School and Gwent Police (Gwent is located in south-east Wales, UK) present a film that will open your eyes and hopefully stop you from texting and driving.

While the short video is a little gory, if you have teenage drivers at home please consider having them watch this too.

It is hoped this film will become part of the core schools program across Wales and the UK and ultimately worldwide.

Gwent Police facilitated the films crash scenes because they want to stop ALL drivers, but particularly young and new ones, from causing accidents.

Seeing a scenario played out right before your eyes makes you realize how extremely dangerous it can be and what devastating consequences it can have.

We hope that after watching this film motorists will think twice before picking up their mobile phone when behind the wheel and realize that a quick reply to a text message or answering a phone call is never worth putting theirs and other peoples lives at risk.
