Texting = Death

Everyone agrees that driving while distracted is bad and dangerous. A study by AAA and "Seventeen" magazine polled about 2,000 drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 and discovered that even though 84% understand driving while distracted is dangerous, they do it anyway.

Unfortunately, teens are not the only offenders: adults do it to.

No matter who does it, driving while doing something else is a very bad idea -- and in some cities, it's also illegal.

Better yet, you can view this totally awesome public service announcement from the UK:

Then, just for fun, you can watch a short explanation of how the special effects crew created some of the accident shots:
