Most people wouldn't drive a vehicle blindfolded, yet many will admit to sending a quick text behind the wheel. A new BlindMeters road safety website by Parents of Road Victims calculates just how far we drive blind while texting.
Created by Happiness Brussels, BlindMeters turns Google Maps into a text editor and uses a bespoke font that will stretch according to the speed limit of the road, so you can see your own words drawn out on the road. The higher the speed limit the longer the distance covered and the longer the words will stretch.
Those interested in trying it out can head to the website to type in their last text sent, offering a wake-up call to end distracted driving.
