The documentary is attached. I watched a few sickening minutes. Please take a look and spread the word! You may be saving a life or more than one.

In the words of our inimitable governor Perry, "Make texting illegal? Why?"

People do not have the ability to multitask while driving. I know they think they do, but something will give and it will probably be the focus on the road. Don't risk killing others, and yourself.

"Make texting while driving illegal? Why?" See without coffee who can think?

Very sad. There are so many distracted drivers on the road now that you have to be even more cautious when driving even just around town..

Watched about half of it. Horrible. Texting while driving is every bit as dangerous as driving drunk. And the results as bloody too. I see SO many people doing this, it is illegal here now and arrests are being made, but gawd, people should not have to die or be crippled for life over a freaking text. It is criminally negligent behavior that should be punished as such. So often, it is young people, the same who are likeliest to get in accidents anyway due to their inexperience and their own sense of immortality. What a way to lose your innocence, taking another's life or livelihood or crippling them. We are so smart and yet so stupid. I do give credit to ATT for sponsoring that and wonder when Coors might do the same, or any liquor business. Because it isn't until you see something like that documentary that your habits change. It should be part of every drivers ed course, it might be I suppose, it has been a long time since I took mine, but if it isn't, it should be. People need to see graphically what a few seconds of misbehavior can do when behind the wheel of a couple tons of steel.

Thank you for your effort to save lives! This should be required viewing for highschool students. I will share it with my students and have them write an essay about it.

It should be just teens and young adults who see this. Several times a week I see big rig drivers with a cell phone plastered to one ear and they're turning corners one handed. It's gotten so I seldom see any driver turning that isn't holding a cell phone. Noted and thank you -I hope more adults will watch this.

Noted. people who use there phone to make a call or text while driving are irresponsibly and should be ashamed of themselves. It is the same as drink driving. One second of distraction is all it takes for someone life to be taken or changed for ever. If you are going to drink you don't take your car keys.
I wish people will realise you do not have to be tied to your phone 24/7. I am showing my age ,what did we do before cell/mobile phones. You can always put your phone away till you get to your destination. love and respect life.

Drivers can't even Talk on the cellphone safely (they seem to go blind with a phone to their ear!), so how in the world Can they Text??? It's already illegal in Illinois - but dumba$$es keep doing it anyway! My niece was hit broadside at an intersection last month by a dumba$$ texter, but neither were hurt. The young woman told the cop she was texting (stupidity HAS to be explained!;)
