Thumbs up Video game demonstrates that texting + driving is dangerous!

A great thought and IMO a way forward for the sake of awareness of the masses. Such things are a great way to teach people and also get things registered in their minds.

I have seen many on the roads driving and riding while talking on the mobile plus pedestrians texting while crossing the roads.

Below video game is a start to spread the awareness. Here's an excerpt regarding the game:

Quote:
Most drivers on the road are guilty of having typed a text / email or answered a call while behind the wheel. The game, called SMS Racing, gives users a first-hand experience of the aforementioned perils.

The idea is to deliver is serious though it employs a playful approach to deliver the message. The goal is to cross the finish line first, while answering texts. Texts pop up during the race, and players have 10 seconds to answer them. If you run out of time, you lose a 'friend' - do it thrice and the game is over.
Watch the trailer here:

I loved the concept. It's a fun way of educating drivers about the risk of texting while driving.

On the flip side though, if some person becomes an expert in the game, he/she might soon replicate the act on our streets too.
