Perhaps we shouldn’t use our mobile phones while we’re mobile

In an effort to stop people fiddling where their phones whilst driving, the people from the Western Cape Government have taken a slightly different approach. A recent advert appears to have lifted a number of CCTV images showing a phone-relate accidents. There’s people falling into ponds, walking into lamp posts and, although a lot (or all) of them appear to be staged (at least two are filmed in the same place), it gets the message across and the final scene is definitely one you don’t want to be part of (even if that one is staged too).

So, don’t faff with your mobile while you’re driving.
