More and more traffic accidents are due to texting. If we want to reduce the 1.2 million traffic victims worldwide each year, we have to act. How do you convince youngsters not to text while driving? Prove them it is a very bad idea: oblige them to text while driving! See how Belgian learner drivers reacted when they were told they had to pass the mobile phone test in order to get their driver’s license.
With all the horrible statistics about texting and driving there are still young people around the world who die behind the wheel with their phones in their hands. This driving school opted for a different approach though… they forced their students to text and drive.
You can watch the statistics all day long but you won’t understand how dangerous it is until you do it yourself. Watch if these drivers managed to pass the test and consider that the driving course is a walk in the park compared to the real life driving conditions.
