It Can Wait Campaign: Texting and Driving Kills – It is that Simple – No Text is Worth Dying For

With school opening shortly many teens will be driving for the first time to school.

A recent AT&T survey found that 97% of teens say they know that texting is dangerous. The survey also found:

· 75% of teens surveyed say that texting while driving is “common” among their friends;

· Almost all teens (89%) expect a reply to a text or email within five minutes or less;

· And 77% of teens report seeing their parents text while driving.

Wireless provider AT&T*, seeking to bring attention to a serious road-safety problem, today urged all Americans to pledge to stop texting while driving, and then to join with others September 19th to make a lifelong commitment to never do so again.

AT&T’s “It Can Wait” public awareness campaign is focused on a simple, powerful message: No text is worth dying for. AT&T plans to spend tens of millions of dollars on the campaign in 2012 and has made it an ongoing commitment in future years.

As school opens in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach County it is critical parents talk to their teens that are driving and even their kids that will be riding with others that are driving – texting and driving can kill. Distracted driving kills.

Take the pledge to never text and drive today! Click here.

Parent question: What type of role model are you? Do you text and drive? Do you believe an experienced driver has the ability to text and drive safely? Think again.

  1. A text can always wait. You don’t want to be the reason why someone dies. I have friends that text and drive and think they can multitask but I tell them it is not worth it. Accidents happen and it is very sad when teens and even parents do it.
