New Year's Eve is usually a time when authorities warn people about the dangers of drinking and driving. However, AT&T has produced a new hard-hitting documentary, "The Last Text," about ways its products are misused that are every bit as deadly.
The film's true stories of teens and tragedy pull no punches about deadly practice of texting and driving.
One girl sent the text that distracted her driving sister, who died in an automobile accident.
"If I could talk to her one last time I would say, 'I am sorry,'" the girl said.
There documentary also features the story of a young man who killed a cyclist while texting.
"I sent one stupid, meaningless text - 'lol' - and killed a man," the young man said.
The the disturbing documentary - part of AT&T's "It Can Wait" television, print, and online campaign - is scheduled to premier this week before New Year's Eve.
"You are 23 times more likely to get into an accident if you are texting and driving," said Gail Torreano, Senior Vice President for AT&T. "We don't want anyone to use our technology unless they're safe."
So far, 30 states have laws against texting and driving.
