Stop Making Videos While Driving

YouTube and Facebook are filled with people publishing selfie videos that were recorded while driving. I don't know why this type of video is popular. I do know that every time I see one I think about how dangerous that is. Tom Scott visited the University of Iowa's National Advanced Driving Simulator to find out how dangerous it is to talk to a camera while driving. Watch his video to find out what happens when you record a selfie video while driving.


Applications for Education
Please share this video with the teenage drivers in your life. If nothing else, show them the last minute of the video.

On a related note, Gauging Your Distraction is an excellent online game that show students how difficult it is to navigate traffic while reading and replying to text messages.
