In light of my previous post about the apparent extra protective layer that grandparents have when they drive their grandchildren around, I decided to post this BMW distracted driving advertisement. I believe that telephones and texting play a big role in parents’ accidents these days.
I wrote a longer post about the this BMW video on my other blog, MediaTechParenting.
I think banning cell phones didn’t make a difference because Bluetooth is equally distracting. It’s not the fact of holding the phone; it’s the fact that someone using Bluetooth is still mentally distracted and engrossed in conversation and not on driving. That’s the real problem.
