Video shows what happens when you text and drive
The incident took place on January 4th at 1am and the 23 year old who was behind the wheel admitted that he took his eyes off the road so that he could continue texting. He was cited by the police for careless driving and texting while driving. The video was taken by a police car trailing behind the Grand Am, using the dash-cam.
Next time you are in a situation where you find yourself texting and driving, think of this video and put your phone down. This guy was lucky that he wasn't hurt. You might not be so lucky.

Texting is more relevant than all of those put together, matter of fact people do a lot more texting than any of those in a car.

This video is dumb/irrelevant. What kind of idiot would shave brush teeth while driving?

As a professional driver, I ask and beg you all to stop texting and driving and shame those you know that still do this.
Grow the frak up, its illegal as some can't herd their car down the road with both hands on wheel an eyes on road in the first place very well.
Add in texting an we are all in danger from little Bobby or Susan and their so important text.

Half of billions of people don't really care if they text/drive while they don't know until they crash or kill someone. As for me I don't talk n text if I have to just pull over n make a call. Don't see why it's not hard for anyone to do that.
