Werner Herzog’s One Second To The Next Targets Texting And Driving

Werner Herzog has worked in many different fields, as a director, writer, producer and actor and his latest endeavour is an educational documentary about texting while driving.

Deadline reports that Herzog was inspired to make a feature length documentary on the subject, entitled One Second To The Next, after directing this thirty second video for the campaign ItCanWait,

The film, which focuses on the impact of incidents that involved drivers taking their eyes off the road to text for just a few seconds, will premiere at the Pacific Design Center’s Silver Screen theater in Los Angeles on August 8 before being distributed to almost 40 000 schools in America.

I’ve personally seen some pretty terrible examples of people not paying the proper attention whilst driving and in part I’m sure this was down to complacency. Hopefully campaigns such as this can help make people stop and think more about their actions.
