I have a confession: I used to text and drive.
I’m not proud of it, but I did. A lot.
And then, a couple of years ago, I saw the below ad and it completely changed my outlook on texting and driving. Was a text or e-mail worth getting in a accident over? Dying?? No. Of course not.
Drivers who text while driving are 23 times more likely to be in a crash. Yeah.
In 2009, AT&T began raising awareness about the dangers of texting and driving with the It Can Wait campaign, and has since gotten over 1 million people to sign a pledge online saying that they will not text and drive. I’ve pledged at ItCanWait.org, and you should too.
To help raise awareness about the importance of putting down the phone, I’ve partnered with AT&T to give away an “It Can Wait” gift pack.
What’s in the gift pack?
- An “It Can Wait” branded case for the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
- An “It Can Wait” T-Shirt
- 2 “It Can Wait” Thumbbands
- 2 “It Can Wait” Stickers
- A SkinIt coupon for one free large device skin
- A brand new Samsung Galaxy SIII.
