Roy Mura of the Coverage Counsel blog posted the two videos embedded below on his Web site yesterday. Ordinarily, I would simply link to someone else's blog and let the reader make the effort to access the content. However, these videos are too important. Do you drive? Own a cell phone? Both? Do you know and love someone who does both? Make sure you watch these and make sure your friends watch them, too. They drive home the point like nothing I've seen before: It only takes a second to ruin the lives of dozens of people. Please note, the first video is You Tube rated for viewers 18 and older, due to very graphic content. Both videos are heartbreaking.
Let's be careful out there, folks.
Update: YouTube pulled the first video off its site the day after I originally posted this, apparently believing that it is too shocking. It's incredibly shocking and disturbing, and for that reason all drivers should see it. Roy Mura sent me an alternative link which appears to work. I heard from at least one IIABNY member that the second video was also not working. I've updated the code, and it too seems to be working now.
