AT&T is a tremendous corporate citizen for spearheading this campaign. Every driver is at risk. Even if you’re not texting, someone next to you is. More than 100,000 crashes occur per year and texting while driving is the leading causes of teen fatalities. Seventy-eight percent of teens say they will stop texting while driving if a friend reminds them not to. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk; Friends don’t let friends text and drive!  Spread the word!

This campaign is about 3 things:

  • Raising awareness

  • Changing behavior

  • Saving lives

Take the pledge today! Visit ItCanWait.com for more information!

Bella testing the simulator. A text comes in, you take your focus off the road and CRASH!  Every person that tried the simulator crashed. 100,000 accidents each year. More deadly than drinking and driving.
