For some ungodly reason, “texting and driving” has been written off as a psuedo-problem. A laughable misdeed worthy of a pointed finger-wagging rather than something to really incur the shame it decidedly deserves. Fortunately, we have figures like Werner Herzog who are making a mission out of expressing the severity of the often lethal practice.
Filmmaker Herzog has created the above documentary — From One Second to the Next — as propagation of the dangers of texting while driving. The 70-year-old Grizzly Man director uses real people and their true stories to hit the viewer with a thick heap of heartbreak, pulling no punches in the message that texting and driving is, undoubtedly, a terribly dangerous and thoughtless thing to do.
Watch the video above to ensure that you’ll break the habit altogether, and perhaps share it with a few friends who might need a little extra convincing.
