Texting & Driving Isn’t Just A Teen Problem…Take The Pledge & Spread The Word #ItCanWait
July 12th, 2013 by Christen
Texting & Driving isn't just a teen problem... more and more adults do it everyday! The lid hiding the misconception of texting and driving has been uncovered, and the fact is there are more adults who text and drive than teens. So what does that mean to you? That means that there are more seasoned, commuters on the road who believe that they’re capable of texting while operating a motor vehicle and putting more and more people in danger now than ever before.
Earlier this year, AT&T released the results of its latest commuter survey which showed 49% of commuters admitted to texting and driving versus 43% of teens. These findings finally dispelled the myth that texting and driving is predominantly a teen problem, when in fact, commuters are more guilty of it.
While there are impactful psa commercials on tv & celebrities like Gabby Douglass and Demi Lovato bringing light to the #ItCanWait campaign, many people still do not realize the dangers that texting while driving can cause. That's where you can help! You now know that texting and driving is wrong, so why not spread the word?
