New anti-texting & driving campaign features Ala. Gov. Robert Bentley

(WTVM) -

Many people have lost their lives due to texting behind the wheel, but some still won't put down their phones while driving. 

Today, officials in Alabama along with Governor Robert Bentley announced a new campaign aimed at teens.

Governor Bentley and the director of public safety have created a video titled "The Last Text."

It also includes stories from people who have seen firsthand the dangers of texting and driving, and the details are graphic – it doesn't hold back.

"The first thing I noticed was her shoes in the roadway...young girl...and at that point I noticed her cap and gown...she was going to graduate the next day," said State Trooper Grant Hendrix.

The hope is it will get the message across, no matter how well you think you text and drive.
