Here at AT&T, the It Can Wait program is trying to reduce the number of accidents caused by texting and driving to 0. We plan to do this by educating teens on the dangers of distracted driving. In 2012 over 200,000 accidents were caused by texting and driving.
The It Can Wait program begins with a simple pledge. From there we encourage teens to remember their pledge when the temptation to text and drive occurs. We also have the AT&T drive mode available for download on mobile devices to help minimize the temptation to text and drive. When teens go through our educational courses on texting and driving, we offer many different first-hand accounts of the risk and dangers.
