Usually we let our videos speak for themselves, but seeing a lot of comments so I want to clear one thing up if you'll spare a moment to read. Our texting while driving habits were exaggerated for the sake of this video to demonstrate examples of real behaviors out there. I see people texting and driving every. single. day. and we wanted to make a video about the dangers. Using your phone while driving seems to be becoming apart of everyday life, and that is terrifying. We often lean into elements of our character/personality as a way to represent different types of people. In doing so, we also leaned into the edit to make our real life habits look as dangerous as possible to underscore our message. In hindsight, we now see how poorly we come off, especially me (Zach), and for that we apologize. It's a tricky line to make these videos both fun and serious, and at times we come off as callous and reckless during this one. My comment about using my phone the next day was not said to be apathetic, but rather to show that cell phone use is an ingrained and habitual behavior for so many people. I got to a red light, took out my phone, and thought "what the hell am I thinking?" I saw in that moment how using my phone isn't even a conscious activity sometimes, and I imagine for many people it's the same. You can know something is bad and still do it, and that scares me the most. It's not just my life on the line out there, and as someone who was in a nearly fatal car accident as a child I know this as well as anyone. I’ve been guilty of using my phone in my car. I imagine some of you have been too. You tell yourself you can do it safely, but you just can’t. That’s why we made this series - to show people that. I was in charge of this edit and was willing to make myself look bad to prove that point. It seems I should say on the record that the video portrays me as a far more egregious phone user than I really am. I regret how far the video pushes it and am sorry if I disappointed you. I promise our intentions were pure. So, ultimately I’m glad some of you are mad. I hope what you watched disgusts you and that you and your friends never do it. But for those upset that I haven’t learned my lesson, please know that is not the case. Thanks for watching this series and apologies for bogging this final episode down with a long-winded message. I hope you can still enjoy and learn from it. 💚 Zach (and the rest of the guys)

That's one of the downsides of autimatic cars. If you need both of your hands to drive, you can't use your phone as often. Of course, distracted/ texting drivers are a problem in europe, too, cause you don't have to switch gears all the time. But from my perception, europeans need more coordination/ effort to drive the car so that they don't use their phones in complicated situations like switching lanes or big intersections.

i’ve been driving for 2 years now & i can’t bring myself to text & drive!!! i’m very confident in my driving abilities but it really only takes seconds for either myself or someone else to make a mistake & endanger the lives of those around them. please consider that you share the road with people that have families & loved ones that expect them to be home at the end of the day. there is literally nothing important on your phone that’s worth risking your life & anyone in your car with you or around you.

Piece of advice, put your phone on airplane mode when you get in the car. That way, only actual texts and calls come through, rather than all notifications. My family has a policy where if theres an emergency and we need to get in contact with each other, we will ring once, then ring again immediately if there is no answer. This way, random calls and non emergencies from people who don't know we're driving can be screened out and ignored, and if there is an emergency, we have the time to find a place to pull over to answer.

My phone's on silent all the time. Before I set off, I send my last message then it stays in the glove box for the journey. I hate being distracted by my phone, and I never fall the excuse of "what if it's an emergency?". Depending on who you know and their circumstances, the general likelihood is that it's extremely rare that that message was an actual emergency

Never driven drunk. Never even gotten high. I have been guilty of texting while driving, but only when stopped. If someone calls, I pull over. I struggle the most with driving while sleep deprived (I pretty much live sleep deprived).

Honestly, since getting my driver's license 2 years ago, I don't understand how people can text while driving. For me like changing the radio is sometimes a bit scary.

I have a thing on my phone that allows me to have text read to me. And then all I have to do is say what I wanna say and it sends it. My phone screen isnt even on so I dont have to get so wrapped up in it.

Put your phones on do not disturb or in a in accessible spot. If you drink don't drive do the watermelon craw(walk or get a taxi) home. If your sleepy rest your peeps or say hello the the reaper. If your high then be fly and don't say bye. Please realize it is not just your life on the line if you do these things. It is any and every one else's life's on the road you could kill a whole family. Newborns unborns mothers sisters brothers fathers uncles aunts grandparents. My driving impaired/distracted you can kill people. I was once told if you do a crime once a week for your whole life it is not a matter or if can or mabe. One day you will get cought just don't do it.

Ok I hated that the doctor said “young people” because NONE of my friends have gotten into accidents because of their phones, yet all of our parents have. My mum (50’s) checks her Facebook and texts her friends and starts conversation and have almost gotten into an accident with me in the car multiple times

Summary of this long-ass comment: set yourself up for success and don't go on your phone while driving at all. Also, learn from other people's mistakes instead of learning the hard way and possibly ruining your (or someone else's) life. Reminder that it's not just texting while driving that's dangerous, *any* phone use is. To eliminate or minimize the risks: -set up anything (music, podcasts, audiobook, etc) that you want to listen to before you leave, whether it's putting in a CD or queuing stuff up on a streaming service -when using GPS, check the route before you leave to get an idea of what you need to do. Turn on audio commands. If you have to look at the route while you're driving make sure you have a mount of some sort in your car so the screen is easily within your field of vision (instead of on your lap or in a cupholder, which requires you to completely look away from the road) -turn your phone on silent. Any calls, texts, etcetera can wait until AFTER you reach your destination. No text/call is so important that it's worth risking the lives of other people -if you do need to use your phone for ANY reason, pull over somewhere to park and finish whatever you need to do before getting back on the road I actually rear-ended someone at a light because I was on my phone changing my music. Luckily, it was a relatively minor collision, and nobody was hurt in the accident. However I was paying off the damage to my car for months afterwards and my insurance went up. I learned my lesson after that but easily could've injured (possibly fatally) myself or someone else while driving distracted. My first time watching this entire series was extremely helpful to me in opening my eyes to just how fucking DANGEROUS my driving habits were. It's way too easy to think something is "not that bad" if you haven't personally experienced the consequences. Like the guys demonstrated, doing something regularly can give you a false sense of confidence (like in Eugene's case with the drinking and sleep deprivation, or Zach with the texting) and you don't realize how dangerous your behavior is. At this point in time I'm honestly baffled as to how I've never gotten a DUI given the sheer amount of times I've driven while high on anything from alcohol and xanax to DXM and LSD. Even when one of my old friends got a DUI I brushed it off as him being a moron and the classic "oh it would never happen to me" line of thinking. It's amazing how good our brains can be at justifying our behavior even when we shouldn't be justifying it. I'm much more careful with my driving nowadays but certainly am not perfect, I drove sleep deprived just two nights ago and I'm not proud of it at all. Re-watching this series makes me determined to commit to being a safer driver, because even if I don't give a shit about my own life, other drivers, pedestrians, and animals on the road don't deserve to suffer the consequences of my carless attitude. Thank you guys for putting these videos out! They're way more helpful and motivating to me than reading statistics.

My mom was driving and this guy going towards her merged into her lane at 45 mph bc he was texting and she had to peep her horn. she pulled over since she got so scared. Thank god nothing bad happened but the guy apologized but I hope it was a wake up call that that could of ended badly
