The Most Powerful Anti-Texting Film You’ll Ever See

This broke our heart. Acclaimed director and documentarian Werner Herzog created a documentary for AT&T's "It Can Wait" texting-while-driving awareness effort. The 35-minute documentary, "From One Second To The Next" focuses on four accidents caused by texting while driving.

Sidebar: Chandler Gerber, who crashed his van into the buggy that killed a 3-year-old boy, 5-year-old girl died and a 17-year-old boy, did not spend a day in jail, because, although he admitted to texting while driving, a grand jury found he was negligent, but didn't break the law. As for Reggie Shaw, who was 19 years year old when he killed those two men, he spent 30 days in jail and served community service. He's been instrumental in urging Utah lawmakers to pass one of the toughest laws against texting and driving in the country. Under Utah’s new law, offenders face up to 15 years in prison.

What I learned from the film was it is ok to text and drive because even if you kill someone its ok, charges won't be filed.
