Wait, What? Glee's Quinn Dies in Texting Accident?

Wednesday, August 22, 2012 - 10:28 AM

Okay, no. A Glee episode a few months back shows the character Quinn (cheerleader, former pregnant girl) looking away from the wheel to read the text "Where are you? HURRY"  Now the US DOT has made it into an anti-texting PSA.

It's not quite as powerful as the AT&T ads that ran during the Olympics showing, variously, brain dead and seriously injured teens, and siblings and parents of people who died while texting. But hey, it's Quinn. And Ray LaHood means it when he says he wants you to drive safely.

One of the most amazing anti-texting video PSA series was produced by the Gwent Police Dept in Wales. They'd made the rounds back in 2009. Give it a search- very powerful!
