Make it a resolution not to text and drive in 2011; take time to watch this video with loved ones
With New Year's Eve upon us, this is the most dangerous time of the year for drivers. Add to that the horrific statistic that those who text and drive raise their odds of being involved in a wreck by 23 times. Think about that for a moment. That is why it is important to be focused behind the wheel, not just for this weekend but all of the time. No matter what is being texted, it can wait until you have reached your destination.

With this in mind, AT&T has released a documentary showing real-life stories of those who have suffered a life changing incident because they were texting while driving. Texting and driving can change your life permanently and not only could you end up in the hospital, if you are the reason for somebody's injury or death, you might find yourself in jail.

Take time today to watch this video with the people you care about. Without being overly dramatic, we can easily say that you could end up saving a life.

With AT&T's net work there's not way you'd be able to send more then one message before you get to your destination.

Very simple, DONT TEXT AND DRIVE.
I want to punch people in the face when I see them waving into my lane and I glance over and its some stupid girl in a SUV texting and driving.
Or some young guy in a eclipse tailgating me and texting, I yelled at him when he got next to me to look where he was going, he never heard me because he was still texting.
AS HE PROCEDED TO RUN A RED LIGHT AND ALMOST KILLED SOMEONE.
DONT DO IT, DONT TEXT AND DRIVE, GET YOUR FRIEND TO READ THAT STUFF TO YOU. WATCH THE ROAD. FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR LIFE OR SOMEONE ELSES
WATCH THE ROAD !!!!
