The Wathan Funeral Home says the ad is trying to get Canadians to stop texting and driving, which could exceed fatalities from drinking and driving as early as next year.

“More than half of the drivers on the road today risking their lives, their passengers’ lives and the lives of their fellow motorists and pedestrians,” Wathan Funeral Home said in a statement on its website. “That should make you even madder than our billboard did.”
