Will Ads Stop Your Dangerous Texting Habit?

vztextVerizon is showing off an advertisement today (that will run on TV starting Monday) aimed at stopping people from texting and driving, but it’s far too mild for me. I prefer something along the lines of this CTIA ad, which has some of the drama we’ve come to expect from public service announcements. However, the CTIA ad is aimed at teenagers rather than adults; given how many adults text or even just browse on their phones as they drive, perhaps they need an ad targeted at them, too. But will these ads, a bevy of upcoming laws and even the existence of sites like AKBadDriver’s tweet stream actually stop folks from texting (or reading emails) while driving? What about you? Take the poll below the fold.
