Every year thousands of young people die behind the wheel due to texting. But how do you convince youngsters not to text while driving? Responsible Young Drivers decided to do the opposite: oblige them to text while driving! Young aspirant drivers were told they would have to pass the mobile phone test behind the wheel before obtaining their driver’s license. The webvideo shows how they reacted before, during and after taking the texting test.
