    Good video. They should hand texting drivers that cause collisions that kill a pick and shovel and make them dig the graves.

    Good video, but unlikely to do much good, as most still believe that it will only apply to others.

    Good video, but I can't imagine american networks being willing to air a reasonably accurate depiction of the results of negligent driving.

    Naturally, US newspapers would run headlines of this event calling it an "accident" with passive language noting that the car drifted across the centerline...

    holy crap. that was intense. I wish they would show that over here in the us. but its like others have said unlikely to do much good. everyone is always texting and talking on the cell. (can i admit to doing this? and not get banned?) everyone in the us does it and i think that there should be laws against it. altho they would be rather hard to enforce because a cell phone is a very small thing. and cops have to enforce such a large area and they would be verry unlikely to see it.

    How about--texting drivers stopped by police should be required to dig their own graves, after which the officers shoot them and cover them up.

    Actually, the second hit was kind of late. Someone else must not have been paying attention.
