Texting and driving is a modern-day epidemic. Driving is an activity that already has an inherent risk of danger built into it, but when you take your focus off the road the odds of a serious accident occurring go up exponentially. Sadly, in today's fast paced world, we can't seem to put down our phones and that leads to a lot of crashes. Even though texting or using a cell phone while driving is illegal in most places, most people are still guilty of it. Young drivers like teenagers are especially likely to indulge in this, which results in tragedy all too often.
In this mini-documentary sponsored by AT&T, family and friends of people who died in texting-related accidents speak out about the very real consequences that this dangerous practice can have. They also share the last text that the victim ever sent/received before crashing. In every case, the message was definitely not important enough to lose your life over. It's a grim but necessary reminder to us all, because let's face it - few (if any) of us have ever received a text while driving that was worth the difference between life and death.
