Texting while driving PSA: Too graphic?

Texting while driving PSA: Too graphic?
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Each year, many teens operate motor vehicles while fighting with distractions.

An estimated 6,000 teens in the United States die annually from car crashes.

A growing distraction for teens is sending text messages via their cell phones. A recent study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that 46 percent of teen drivers admitted to texting while driving.

Driving instructor Beatrice Hazleton manages Drillers Driving School on 14th Street. She said she emphasizes to students how important it is to pay attention to the road and not to their cell phones.

Recently, a public-service announcement created in Wales was posted online with the hopes of bringing attention to the issue of texting while driving. The dramatized PSA features several teen girls who are involved in a head-on collision with a family after being distracted by texting on their phones.

"This looks real gruesome -- final destination status," said local driving-school student Aaron Sanchez.
