Distracted driving is a serious problem. In my last post about the topic I discussed the AT&T “It Can Wait” website that has important information for families. The AT&T It Can wait website shows “Texting and Driving Crash – It Can Wait” and other videos that anyone with a phone and a car should watch (parents and teens included!):
Join me and pledge to never text and drive. The It Can Wait website has a section where you can share your pledge. Here is another It Can Wait pledge I just did on the website and tweeted: “Those who send txt messages while drivng are 23x more likely to be in a crash. Pledge @ itcanwait.com. #ITCANWAIT “.
AT&T also has a DriveMode™ (Android and BlackBerry) app that has auto on/off to help increase safety on the road.
The DriveMode app “curbs the urge to text and drive by allowing you to temporarily limit the features of your mobile device so you stay focused on the road. You can set-up auto-replies to texts, emails and wireless phone calls to let people know you’re on the road and will get back to them. AT&T DriveMode is free to AT&T customers.”
UPDATE: Jeannine S is our Winner (and she has been contacted). Thanks to all that entered!!
