I believe that texting is not worth the risk. You should never take the chance of answering a simple text while you're driving, it's not worth your life. I believe that this did not change my view because I already know how dangerous it is to text and drive. I also feel that there should be more rules and laws based on texting and driving in order to prevent these accidents. When people text and drive, everyone they know is effected. That includes themselves.

No matter how important a text may seem to send, no next is worth a life, and it can wait. People think that they can multitask, be on the phone while they are driving and nothing will happen to them. That is completely false. It can happen to anyone and it happens to people every single day. The video did not change how I feel about texting and driving because I already know what danger it could cause and would never consider doing it. I believe that there should be stricter penalties for people who text ad drive. It could make them realize that since there is a penalty such as paying involved, that they don't want to pay that amount, and it isn't worth the money. Not only is the driver who is texting and driving affected, maybe being severely hurt or even killed, but their family members and friends too. If that person were too be killed, their family and friends would be devastated. No text is worth a life. It can wait.

Texting and driving is not worth the risk of anyone's life for the people doing the texting and driving and the people around them.This video did not change my opinion on texting and driving but simply brought more or a reality to it,because I have always been against the thought of texting and driving.texting and driving or distracted driving penalties should be the strictest driving penalties there is because it's a well known thing that is always believed to be stupid. Everyone is effected by texting and driving accidents from the person doing it,the people in the car,the police,their family,drivers around them;texting and driving effects everybody.

No text message no matter what it consists of is worth taking your full attention off the road. Even if you here an alert that you have gotten a message do the right thing and keep your phone where it is until you are done driving. After watching the video it didn't change my opinion on texting and driving because i already knew it was dangerous. In my opinion they should make the penalties for texting and driving my intense than they are, thus, making the people learn that its a BIG deal and that they shouldn't do it. The people in the car and EVERY one around,the peoples families,friends,coworkers etc is/can be affected by the person texting and driving.

No text is worth anyone's life no matter how important that text may be, it can wait. This video never changed my opinion on texting and driving as I had already believed that it was a very threatening thing to do. I think that they should make the penalties more stricter so that people will understand how dangerous it is to text and drive and that they should enforce those penalties more than they are now. It really depends on if the person who text and drove was in a car accident, because if they were then there family (siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc), friends, the person you were texting. You can't multi task so like what Austin said your either doing one thing or the other.
