Anti-Texting Documentary Aims To Reach Drivers Before New Year’s
The Charles E. Boyk Law Office would like to pass along a documentary that was released by AT&T. A powerful anti-texting documentary aimed at reaching drivers before New Year’s Eve, which is considered one of the most dangerous days on the road.
The documentary illustrates the dangers of this issue and the real-life accounts from victims, relatives, friends, and individuals who were responsible for killing innocent people while reading or responding to a text message many of which were simple messages such as “Where u at.”
The full 10-minute video is part of AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign and will be distributed to schools, government agencies, and safety organizations to get the message out on the dangers of texting and driving. The documentary is very powerful and makes you think twice about what you are doing when you’re in the car or if you are a passenger in a vehicle what the driver is doing.
The documentary comes at a time when distracted driving has been at the forefront of any discussion about automotive safety. In 2009, over 5,500 people were killed in distracted driving accidents, with a large proportion of the deaths involving people under the age of 20.
