We’ve heard it over and over: don’t text and drive. However, it still remains a worldwide issue, primarily with young people. Responsible Young Drivers of Brussels has come up with a creative solution to the problem: make kids text and drive.
It may sound absurd, but it also seems to have really affected some of these young drivers. Two of the drivers voiced their concerns: “If this becomes law, I’ll stop driving” and, “What you’re asking is dangerous.” Based on the way they were all driving, it’s amazing the video didn’t end in a horrible crash.
Do you think videos like this will get through to young drivers? What can we do to stop texting and driving?
