… you’ll get covered in red food coloring? Or is this ad by Mudra Group for the Bangalore Traffic Police [from Copyranter via Daily Dish] trying to say something else? Meanwhile, when do we get an Oprah Winfrey version of this spot?

    Ok, so the fake blood may be a little cheesy…but the abundance of distracted, dangerous drivers out on the roads is no joke. Almost every day, I see some completely boneheaded move committed by another driver…easily something that could cause a serious accident…and yup, like 90% of the time, the A**hole is yakking away on their cell phone, often oblivious to the carnage they almost caused.

    I support every effort to get the message out to these “attempted vehicular manslaughter” idiots to either friggin’ HANG UP and drive, or get a hands-free phone device, limit your call time while driving and pay waaay more attention to traffic and other cars on the road.

    I like it.

    My brother’s girlfriend keeps calling him even when she knows he’s on the phone. I think she’d get upset if he stopped using the phone while driving. He’s only had one fender-bender recently, but you’d think that was enough of a warning sign.

    Same goes for some working people – if they’re expected to talk and drive, they will. I’m not saying the responsibility actually lies with people other than the driver, but those other people do have a disproportionate ability to get the driver off the phone.

    how are you supposed to know someone is driving before you make the call?

    or do you assume that indians are all taxi driver (which isn’t too far a stretch of the imagination)

    cell phone distractions kill people. it’s a serious problem than needs serious attention and penalties. young drivers (especially) text messaging makes me nervous.

    In fact the blame should be on not-so-bright people who attend the telephones while driving.

    One must not never forget one is handling a very dangerous weapon while driving. While driving I never do, nor I engage in disputes over this and that with passengers. I am focused on the road.

    Smart effective ads, nonetheless.
