Texting and Driving In Style

EDIT: This video has since been removed from Youtube.

Ever wanted to communicate with your fellow drivers on the road? The turn signal and the horn, while effective, can only do so much (which is why they're usually accompanied by the "speed past and stare down" manuever for added punch).

One savvy driver has crafted a way to put a LED display in his rear window, which shows customizable, pre-programmed messages aimed at addressing tailgaters and lane changing in traffic. Even more surprising-he's managed to be very polite with his content! A rare feat that not all of us could accomplish when wanting to dole out some choice words for those we share the road with.

Do you think this is practical? Or would it fall under distracted driving?
