    This is a little excessive, who is honestly that stupid to be looking at their phone that long while driving?

    I know people do it, but it is just REALLY STUPID!

    I have to say that in my personal opinion.. That's a great video. They should show that to High school kids.

    I have a friend who has permanent brain damage because he was in a coma for 3 months. Guess why? He was texting while driving. Hit the center divider and flipped his truck over.

    i agree. this video should be shown to everyone with a cell phone or other distracting device. we all say it wouldn't happen to us, but you never know about the other driver.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    damn that is pretty intense. At first I thought it was going to be ridiculously fake... I was wrong. Thats a really well made anti-texting and driving campaign vid that Im sure will make some people think twice. I do it every once in a while and ive noticed I can occasionally wander in my lane a bit so I think that would be a pretty realistic outcome too.

    Had they been in a tacoma the damage to them would have been far less. If i see people on the highway txting i get in front of them and take my foot off of the gas. So long as there is no one behind them. lol. I txt while at stop lights, but thats it. never while driving.

    This is a pretty neat video. Very realistic. It could happen to anybody.

    But I don't see myself texting any less while driving. I know there are gonna be people hating on me for this, but I could have lied and said I don't text and drive.

    Great Video - realistic and hits home.
    The only way to get the point across to people - is to scare the livin PISS out of people to make them understand.

    For those of you who watched this video and continue to think it's OK to text while driving.... You're a bunch of asswipes!!
    What will it take? Someone else to hit you while they're texting and driving and leave you paralyzed?

    Yeah, that video struck my nerves.
