The Malta Police Force has launched a new video to warn drivers of the consequences of distracted driving.

The 33-second video features a young man who makes a phone call while driving. As he looks down at his phone to hang up, the man misses a red light, looking up and slamming on the breaks just in the nick of time to avoid running over a woman on the pelican crossing.

A message at the end reads: "With just one call, you could end it all."

The video aims at bringing attention to the possible outcomes of using mobile devices while driving.

The video is available for viewing on the police force’s official Youtube channel.
