Worth sharing, I think.

An interesting site.  Always hard to know how to get the 'safety' message over to young people though.  The site works for me!  cool

I thought the one-liners (almost) on this site's landing page that relive a fatal text exchange are punchier than, say, the well-known and horrific video done a year or two back.  After all, we see similar crashes weekly on Casualty and manage to objectivise them.
Acknowledging and identifying with the banality of the text messages on the landing page (and their dreadful outcomes) may strike a chord with some and "get through".  It's probably worth a try.
But I think the messages need to be constantly hammered in to have an effect to match that of Savile's contributions on seatbelts and of those ad's at the outbreak of AIDS.
