Sup Travellers?! Texting and driving is bad. I know that most of you probably already know this but it's something that apparently needs to be said over and over again because some people just don't get it. According to the video above, mobile use is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel.

In the video, an interactive PSA called "Eyes on the Road" was shown at a movie theater in Hong Kong. The ad begins with a first-person perspective of driving a car on an empty road. The theater then uses a location-based broadcaster to send texts to the moviegoers, while the driving footage continues to play.

While audience members are busy checking their phones, the vehicle on-screen crashes, making the crowd aware of some sort of real life texting and driving scenario. The video then urges the crowd not to text and drive and to keep their eyes on the road.

People have become so attached to their phones that they just can't put it down even while driving. Just this morning I wrote an article about two people who died after diving into a cesspool to find a phone. A phone isn't worth that much.

Don't get me wrong, I love my phone, but I love my life more. Please don't text and drive. I urge you ALL. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
