    Holy crap. Texting while driving is nothing but an accident waiting to happen.

    Definitely graphic, but it does get the point across. My boyfriend is a truck driver, and he sees people texting all the time. It drives him, and me, nuts. The only consolation I have is that at least if someone hits him while texting, he'll come out of it ok.
