|Deadly Driving Distractions: Texting, Cell Phones, and Other Killers|
| In this award-winning video, celebrity psychology researcher David Strayer, a driving instructor, and other experts underscore the hazards of driving while texting, while talking on a cell or using an MP3 player, while eating, and while drunk - clinically speaking, a cognitive form of driving distraction - as they advise on safe driving techniques. In addition, young adults add extra credibility to the "eyes on the road, hands on the wheel" message by expressing concern about their own distracted driving behaviours. The programme concludes with the story of a young man who died behind the wheel because he was texting. "yeah t" were his last words - the unsent message at the time of impact. Poignant & persuasive.
