Texting while Driving PSA from Wales

Gory and graphic. Not for kiddies or weak stomachs, and maybe some stuff that wouldn't be shown on air TV.

I had a cop a long time ago tell me "Screw guns, you're driving the deadliest weapon in the USA." He's right too, I used that as a basis for a paper on Gun Control saying that if we wanted to save the lives of children between the age of 15-25 then we should ban cars in the country instead of guns in the city.

seen worst videos over here, plus texting or just using your phone over here is 3 points on your licence or in some cases like this it would mean a prison sentence

didnt know you could drive as young as 15 in the US, for us its 17, and 16 for 50cc bikes
