Despite what we all know about the consequences of texting and driving, 77% of young adults still think they can text and drive safely. To combat this pervasive behavior, we wanted to prove to young drivers that no text was worth a life. We teamed with filmmaker Werner Herzog to create a film showing people whose lives were forever altered by a trivial text. The film was adopted institutionally as a teaching tool for police and government institutions, and was shown in over 40,000 high schools and drivers' education programs around the world.
