Texting n Driving Videos

This section contains videos posted online, of Driving n Texting. Some videos are dramatizations of what could possible happen if you were texting and driving and failed to be 100% aware of what's going on around your vehicle, as it basically drives out of control from lack of driver attention. Some of the videos are of accident scenes after the fact. Due to possible texting and driving circumstances.

Some of the videos contain graphic scenes, that may not be suitable for those of you with a weak stomach or kind hearted. I will make a note near the specific videos warning of the content.

The amount of actual drivers that are texting while driving is amazing. If you are a passenger in a vehicle just take a look around outside of the vehicle that you are in while driving to or from wherever you're going. You will be astounded by how many people do this. The scarier thing about this is that if you look you will see professional drivers doing it as well: delivery persons, law enforcement personnel, city workers, bus drivers, the list goes on. It's a crazy thing. I have a daughter that recently got her drivers license, and I am scared that other drivers who are texting and driving will not be as alert with watching the road as they should be, and will accidently go out of their lane while driving. It is a far to common practice many drivers have gotten accustom to doing while driving, instead of paying attention and driving like they should.

Please do all that you can to help prevent and stop this out of hand situation, it's not just your life that you are playing with when you decide to text and drive, but the lives of others as well. And as seen in many of the graphic videos below it could actually be more lives that could be tragically lost or hurt.

FORT MYERS, FL - Dashcam video from the Ft. Myers Police Department is giving us another example of how dangerous it is to text and drive.

On Saturday, January 4 at 1:12 a.m., an officer noticed the driver of a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am was swerving and slowing down for no apparent reason. The officer followed the car as it made a right turn at an intersection.

After making the turn, the Pontiac suddenly sped up, cutting across the inside lane, and driving up onto the sidewalk, where it hit a guard rail, bus stop sign, and a tree before rolling over.

The driver, Michael Woody, was able to crawl out of the wreck. He later admitted to the officer that he was texting, and not looking at the roadway. Woody was not seriously hurt, but he was cited for careless driving and texting while driving.

The Dangers of distracted driving - A great dramatization of how it could be while texting and driving. Teen drivers enter the roadways with the best of intentions, lots of excitement, and by definition, with the least amount of experience behind the wheel - add the potential distractions of texting or talking on the phone while driving to the equation and the situation could become dangerous, quickly.

PSA Texting while Driving U.K. - This video, although a dramatization, seems like an all too commonplace event here in America. Especially with the teenagers, whom are always with friends, having a good ole' time, not really paying attention to what's going on around them and their car when they are texting and driving. Sometimes going the speed limit, but after only a few moments it's easy to see that the vehicle can easily and quickly change lanes, heading into oncoming traffic. No text, gossip, or popularity level, is worth having something like this happen to you. **This dramatization video has content that may be disturbing to some viewers**  I think every parent should show this video to their children, especially if they are teenagers.

An Elk Grove, Calif., family is warning teens and parents about the dangers of texting n driving after an 18-year-old relative died in a head-on crash. She was text messaging and ended up changing lanes into oncoming traffic hitting a truck head-on, killing both drivers. This video has accident scene with the two vehicles and the roadway it happened on, which looked to be a rural area.

Bus driver caught on video texting n driving -  This video has been out for a while, but is a clear sign of what can and does happen when you text and drive. He was driving a bus with two handicapped wheelchair bound passengers. He was traveling on a highway in Texas, texting and driving. There are two cameras in the bus, one on the driver, and one aiming out the front windshield. Both the camera views show simultaneously driver texting, and traffic ahead of the bus on the highway slowing and finally stopping to a dead stop in the lane he was in, in-front of him on the highway. By the time he realized the traffic had stopped, he was still going the speed limit and was to close to stop. He locks up the brakes for only a split moment before ramming the SUV in front of him, and that vehicle into the next.

Texting while Driving - Meet a teenage girl who has had her drivers license for only 4-6 months, and has ran into a guardrail, hit a curb because she was texting and forgot to shift, doing thousands of dollars worth of damage to her car. Nearly hit a person while driving with her little sister in the car while she was text messaging.. She was ticketed for going 80+ in a 55 MPH because she didn't notice her change in speed while she was texting. And continues to use her cell phone regularly. The incidents that happened were all caused by her on the phone texting, she admittedly said. Even while on the famous show Dr. Phil, she smiled and thought it wasn't  anything so bad... maybe she should look at the first video at the top of this page ;-).

Texting while driving is deadly - Prince William County Public Service Announcement. Even though you may possibly possess the skill to text and drive, the one day that you mess up could cost you, and/or other people their lives. It is so sad that young lives need to die unnecessarily.
