Powerful Documentary Tells Stories Of Texting While Driving Victims | Orlando Accident Attorney
“From One Second To The Next” is a very powerful short documentary film directed by award-winning filmmaker Werner Herzog. The film was produced by AT&T, as part of its “It Can Wait” public awareness campaign against texting while driving.
As an Orlando accident attorney who has seen his fair share of distracted and texting while driving accidents, I thought the stories in the film would be sort of old hat for me. I was wrong. This film is very moving:
I was particularly struck by the testimony of “Chandler”, a young father from rural Indiana who killed an entire family in a crash while he was texting with his wife. He said before this accident he always thought, “I can text and drive at the same time — it’s no big deal.” How many of us have thought this, too?
Texting while driving is a big deal. If you have to text while you are on the go, by all means pull over, or wait until your vehicle is stopped.
