Does Bloody Texting While Driving Video Go Too Far?

A new video aimed at scaring teenagers from texting while driving is so graphic some are calling for its removal, despite its seemingly positive message.

A police department in Gwent, a small county in Wales, recently put together a video aimed at showing teenagers the dangers of texting. The video has become an internet phenomenon, attracting over four million views, largely because of its extremely graphic nature.

In the video, a girl swerves into oncoming traffic while texting, sending her and her two friends flying in a shower of blood and glass, quickly followed by several collisions and even the death of an infant.

OpposingViews asks: Does the video go too far, or is it this the kind of strong message that should be sent?
