Safety organization proves that it’s impossible and dangerous to do both.

Ever seen those morons on the road looking at their mobile phone and trying to stay in their lane? Yup, there are thousands of them on the road, endangering both themselves and other drivers.

So a safety organization in Belgium, Responsible Young Drivers, decided it would be great to educate young drivers on the dangers of texting – by making it part of a driving test.

The unsuspecting applicants were asked to text a few phrases while taking their actual driving test. There were a number of reactions, from downright disbelief to absolute rage. And when the examiner fails them for not spelling their texts properly, things really take a turn for the bizarre.

Check out the video below to see just how dangerous it can get when you try to text and drive.
