AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Sprint have joined forces for the “It Can Wait” campaign against texting and driving. This week, they debuted a new documentary, “From One Second to the Next,” directed by noted filmmaker Werner Herzog.

AT&T also has an online simulator to show what happens on the road from the safety of one’s PC. For those who need a little help being separated from their phones, Bonnie Cha took a look earlier this year at some apps that can enforce a texting ban while driving.
