"Keep your eyes in the road, not the







By: Hailey Bochette









   -In 2010, AT&T started the It Can Wait Campaign.



  -It's goal is to get people to pledge to always have your


eyes on the road when driving and not on your phone.

















   -With today's technologies, it is becoming easier to


communicate with others. It can vary from Facebook,


Instagram, Twitter, or a simple text. Because of this, drivers-


more directly, teens and milenials- are getting distracted


from the road to look at their notifications. This causes severe


wrecks and injuries each year.



   -This campaign focuses on young drivers to never text


and drive; "No life is worth losing over a text or call while


driving somewhere."
