It Can Wait!
When, Why & Where
Launched in 2010, AT&T began the It Can Wait campaign to educate people about the dangers of texting while driving and to encourage people not to do it. With an increasingly technology-based world, this campaign began on the internet which allowed word to spread quickly and efficiently.
Their mission statement is: "We're focused on educating the public--especially teens--on the dangers of texting and driving. No text is worth a life...It Can Wait!"
To make their mission more impactful, AT&T invested in a simulator to show firsthand the dangers of texting behind the wheel. They bring this simulator to high schools around the country to educate them on the seriousness of this issue.
Spread the Word
This movement has collected more than 8 million pledges that encourages people to make a commitment to never text and drive while holding themselves accountable to loved ones.
