The nation's four largest carriers, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, are combining on a multi-million dollar campaign against driving while texting and the four will align themselves behind AT&T's "It can wait" slogan; Ads will be run over radio and television and over 200 other organizations will back up the campaign. And if you look up toward the sky, you might find three of Goodyear's blimps promoting the anti-driving and texting message...

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. I think they should show the actual accident, and all the carnage that ensued. If you just show some glamor shots of the people who were killed, it won't do anything.

Parent's aren't teaching their kids the dangers of doing too many things at once. Driving is a full time job when you're behind the wheel, even having to glance at side view mirrors takes away attention which could result in an accident. Then again we know teenagers aren't too keen on listening to adults or anyone in authority for that matter, they prefer the council of other idiots their age...blind leading the blind. Just take a jaunt to any Spring Break party and you'll see just how stupid these idiots can really be. Phones should be able to sense when you are in a car and disable all notifications or lock until you are stopped, accelerometers and gps data can help with that to prevent idiots from killing themselves and others.
