It Can Wait

Victor Monterroso

It Can Wait was created in 2010 in order to spread the message to put your phone down while driving. Rather than keeping your eyes on your cell phone, your eyes should be kept on the road. 

 

 

When/Why

Mission Statement

The mission of It Can Wait is to inform drivers of the possible dangerous consequences if you text while driving. With that, their plan is to make people wait to text until they are done driving. 

46 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have banned drivers for text messaging. If a person is caught texting while driving, they can be given a ticket.
