There are only so many different ways to tell someone not to do something that is bad for them. At a certain point, you just have to throw your hands up in the air and acknowledge that people will do whatever they want to do and there is nothing you can really do to stop them.
There is one exception to this rule, though: people who do bad things that impact others. If folks are doing something that puts other people’s lives in jeopardy, then you have to stay on them for as long as possible, and poke at them in as many different ways as you can find.
Recently, a theater decided to do something very interesting with a group of movie-goers. The message they are trying to drive home has been repeated countless times, but people keep on doing this stupid thing anyway.
This video aims to change that:
There is really no better way to drive home just how quickly you can get into an accident than that. The movie-goers looked down at their phones for just a moment, and then – boom.
If you know people who think texting and driving is no big deal, show them that PSA. Hopefully it will open some eyes.
