A new and controversial video about Texting while driving is getting a great deal of exposure right now. I wonder about its effectiveness? On one hand, it dramatically demonstrates the potential problem of this type of distraction which could “bring home” the message to teens that texting (or other distractions) while driving can be very dangerous. On the other hand, some research shows that this type of message only has a very short term effect if any.
What do you think?
