By now, we should all pretty much have a handle on how dangerous it is to text while driving. Thanks to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s efforts against distracted driving, the word is slowly getting out that using a handheld device while behind the wheel can be as dangerous as driving while under the influence. Now, LG is out to do its part with a series of videos helmed by none other than Glee super villain Jane Lynch. Lynch has already been working with the phone manufacturer in a series of Text-Ed videos that cover everything from sexting to mobile harassment.
In the latest clip, Lynch plays someone serving community service for being busted for texting while driving. As part of her penance, Lynch is forced to lead a group of parents in a talk on the dangers of her actions.
While the clip is plenty funny, the truth is that LG has discovered that around 70 percent of teens say that they’ve been in a vehicle while their parents were texting while driving. Additionally, 44 percent of parents admitted to doing the deed. Hit the jump for a look at the video as well as the press release. Oh, and here’s that link she tells you to check out.
