Apparently AT&T hired Werner Herzog to documentary about the dangers of texting and driving, available on YouTube, called From One Second to Next. Not surprisingly, the film legend does a damn good job with it, taking four stories ranging from the perspective of victims and those texting. It is haunting, just as described by the Slate post that made me aware of it.
I am guilty of checking email as I drive, I will admit that. I need to stop because my luck is going to run out someday. I could have been in this documentary.
