Volkswagen Is Selling N25,000 Phone Cases Made From Texting-And-Driving Crashes by Automotive1(m): 2:02am On Apr 27, 2018

Texting while driving is dumb, dangerous and sometimes deadly. Taking your eyes off the road even for a second to read or send a text message is enough time for the car in front of you to come to a complete stop.

Or for a pedestrian step out in front of your vehicle. Or for the signal turn red, and you blow through the intersection.

In Sweden, the government passed a law making it illegal to drive with a phone in your hand starting in February. However, the number of accidents in Sweden aren’t changing.

So, to drive home the dangers of distracted driving,  Volkswagen  Stockholm partnered with brand management company NordDDB to build Apple iPhone 8 cases from the sheet metal damaged in texting-and-driving accidents.

You are 23 times more likely to be in a car accident if you text and drive, so it’s believed a phone case made by unfortunate cars makes you think twice before you pick up your phone. It will be like a silent reminder to keep focus on the road and not multitask while driving.

The cases, handmade with metal from the wrecked cars, are each, tragically, unique. Only 153 will be made, each one representing a serious accident that happened in Sweden during the first month the law was enforced.

Proceeds from the cases will be donated to the Swedish organization Trafikskadefonden to help people that have been in traffic accidents.

The cases cost 599 Swedish crowns (about $69 U.S. at current exchange rates) and can be purchased at crashedcases.com.
