They wouldn’t dare release an ad campaign like this in the DC area, but i rather wish they would.

While it is illegal to drive while talking your cell phone in Washington DC proper, it is not in Virginia or Maryland (it keeps getting overturned for some reason).  It would be rather nice if we followed suit with the many countries that have banned it entirely.

If you’re American, odds are good you’ve seen the “don’t drink and drive” ad campaigns. The Bangalore Traffic Police have done something similar for the cell phone issue, and kicked it up a notch.

For one, it’s more graphic than they would do here. Second, it implies that the person on the other end of the line is just as guilty as the one driving.

Bravo, India. I like the cut of your jib. Disturb, then guilt those bastards into following the law.
