This Brutal Ad May Change Your Mind About Texting And Driving

Patrick McDonnell

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is kicking off National Distracted Driving Awareness Month with a 30-second ad illustrating how even one thoughtless time texting while driving can be deadly.

The ad draws you in with a slice-of-life scene featuring a few teens laughing and chatting in a car. The driver receives a text, looks at her phone and blows past a stop sign — then, a truck broadsides her car. The action plays out in excruciatingly slow motion.
