Take the Pledge (and Win a Samsung Galaxy III!) CLOSED

It Can Wait

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
and…

 

  • A brand new Samsung Galaxy SIII.

 

Samsung Galaxy SIII

 

I’m an iPhone girl, but I also confess to falling in love with the Galaxy. It’s sleeker than the iPhone, the battery lasts longer and it’s faster. Best of all, there’s an actual zoom on the camera, something I’ve longed for with the iPhone. It’s the coolest phone I’ve seen and I feel like a traitor saying that. But it’s true. The only downside is the steep price tag, ($549) which is why it would be so awesome to win one here!To enter, just leave a comment below and I’ll pick a winner on January 10th at noon using randomizer.org.

 

And, please pledge not to text and drive. It really can wait.
{Update: Congrats to Kim, lucky number 125. I’ll be in touch to get your mailing address!!}

There was a situation in the city where a girl was texting and driving and rear ended a city work truck. The unfortunate part was that the worker was standing behind the truck when it happened. It’s not worth it.

Great cause and great phone.

Brittany 3 years ago

This is a really great cause! I don’t text and drive or call and drive. If it is extremely important, I will pull over to call. I am only 23 and a lot of people put it on the younger generations, but all I ever think is “what if I get in a wreck with my 3 year old son and he doesn’t make it due to my ignorance?” Please remember calling and driving is just as bad! Some people think that because they can text without looking at the phone it is okay, but it is not! You still have to look down a couple times and it only takes one time to screw up! BTW, I can’t get the link to work.

Grace 3 years ago

Seriously worthwhile pledge. I just don’t get why some people don’t understand that a car is hundreds of pounds of hurtling steel death that THEY are responsible for.

This is something that everyone should stop and think about. Texting can wait or just pull over to the nearest parking lot.

Kelly @ In the Mom Light Blog 3 years ago

Oh man. I’ve done it. [hanging my head low as I type this]…. it’s SOO SO important to set an example for our children though not to do this. I’m sure an inexperienced driver would be even more than 23 times more likely to get in an accident while texting :-(

Luanne Francis 3 years ago

Great idea to help spread the word. If it saves 1 life, it’s a success.

I will not text and drive. I will no longer pick up the phone at a red light to read one or use Siri to text while driving. She makes so many mistakes that it’s very distracting.

Sara A 3 years ago

I never text and drive or talk and drive. I also refuse to communicate with anyone who is behind the wheel. If the driver of the car has a cell with them, I insist on holding it for them while they drive. I was in a serious accident in 2011 and cannot fathom why people put their lives and the lives of others at risk for something that can wait.
Thank you for the chance.

Samantha 3 years ago

I never have texted while I drove because I am just not coordinated enough (I suppose no one is really–but I could never figure out how it would work). Hope no one I know and love does it!

a Book for My Daughter 3 years ago

I was driving back from VA with my husband on Tuesday, and I noticed that he kept reaching for his phone WHILE he was driving. I grabbed it out of his hands and told him not to touch it while he was driving. Our two children were in the backseat, so I didn’t want to have an argument, even though my blood was boiling at his reaction to my apparent frustration with him. When we got to the nearest rest stop, I took over driving. I have been trying to figure out how to talk with him about this ever since then, and now I know that the best way to do it is to send him a link to your post. Thank you for writing it.

Carrie Roberson 3 years ago

In 2010, my then-fiancée was hit by a car while riding his bike to work. Right before he got hit, he remembers looking behind him and saw the driver with a phone in her hand. She sped away, leaving him on the ground. He could’ve died and I wouldn’t have my husband or two girls today.

I will NEVER put a phone in my hand while they’re on the wheel unless it’s an emergency.

Kim Griffiths 3 years ago

I PLEDGE! =)

Diana Williams 3 years ago

I used to text and drive as well, thinking so what, I put make up on while driving too. But the ads caught my attention, and I DO have too much to lose (which is what I’ve always taught my kids to think about when making decisions as well), so I do not text and drive. MY HUSBAND however does not feel there is a danger, even though he has swerved a few times even on the expressway!! It would be awesome to hear him give his word that he will not text and drive anymore. Wish me luck in trying to convince him.

Heather Searcy 3 years ago

I used to text and drive…secretly, while condemning others for doing it. Then I drove off the road while simply reading a text quickly. My daughter was in the back seat and by the grace of God we weren’t injured. What an idiot I was. How could I have valued a stupid text more than my child……i haven’t texted and driven since that day!

No more texting and driving! Love that it is finally becoming an issue!!

My hubby loves this phone- it’s what he has. And yes, touch screens have made it that I now pull over to look/ reply because it’s wayyy too much work to text / open them now.

Bosko M 3 years ago

This is precisely why I love touch screen phones. You don’t feel the key bumps under your finger, so it’s much harder to txt while driving (without taking a look). It was enough for me to stop doing it about three years ago.

jak 3 years ago

Driving requires two hands and two eyes, texting needs the same two eyes. Get the kids to text probably quicker at it

Jamie Watts 3 years ago

I no longer text and drive as well. Last year a family in our town lost both of their daughters in an accident where one of the girls lost control of their car on the interstate while texting. I want to be an example to my children, not in an accident caused by foolishness.

Lori Foster 3 years ago

We were just checking out new phones at the AT&T store last weekend and our daughter picked up one of the window clings and asked what it was. After I told her, she asked if she could have one to put on my car. I don’t even text!

Tarra 3 years ago

if i even look at my phone at a stop light my 6 year old yells at me, “you are not supposed to text and drive, mommy!” she’s a great reminder that if i do attempt to text and drive, it’s not just my life that i’m putting in danger!

Esther 3 years ago

I took the pledge! Nothing is so important that it should put your life, or those of others, in danger!

Emily Conway-Palazzo 3 years ago

My kids know not to text and drive, they’re all under the age of 9. Ask any one of them what to do if a text comes thru on the phone while we’re in the car. They say “Just ignore it!” And that ad campaign is one of my favorites because it is so effective.

elizabet valenzuela 3 years ago

I use to text and drive but when the first person in our town died with her infant because she was texting while driving. I realized I was putting myself and my daughter in danger. I didn’t want to die because someone needed me to answer right away or needed to read the latest gossip. I have learned to ignore it while I drive and when I get to y destination I can reply …if I remember. I promise not to text and drive!

Pledged! It used to be, if I saw a car go over the line, I assumed they were changing a radio station or, heaven forbid, drunk. Now when I pass these cars they’ve got phones in their hands.

I was a firm “only check texts at stoplights girl”. then it slid into texts while driving slowly…. then one day i realized i had my 4 kids in the car and was answering a text about what they wanted for christmas. all 4 of them… i typed out while driving and didnt even blink. when i finished i was stunned. i had driven like 4 blocks and had literally no recollection of driving, just typing. never again.

Stacey 3 years ago

I used to text and drive too (sad, but true) until I saw that awful, horrible commercial where the teenage girl is texting and driving and winds up killing a family of 4. Horrible. It CAN wait. Nothing that anybody has to say in a text is worth losing your life over.

Leah 3 years ago

A great thing to bring to public attention. I’ve been hit by a texter. I would never text and drive.

Vicki 3 years ago

I do not text and drive. I do shout at people who are texting and driving so often that my 2 year old joins in. Even he knows it’s dangerous – what is with people?

Would love to win that phone. My current one is..one of those people who texts and drives.

Ginger Kleinfeldt 3 years ago

I got myself a bluetooth ear piece with my Christmas money, so I can NEVER text and drive again. I have seen how it has hurt to many innocent lives. Its time I stand up and STOP doing it. I have always done it until this year. I made that as one of my big 2013 changes to help others. I am doing more volunteer work, helping others more, and I am going not risk anyone else by me texting and driving :) I hope everyone does this!! I wish all states would ban it also!

Eddie Stark 3 years ago

There is no reason at all to EVER text and drive. With all the media campaigns and information out there it is scary to hear that people still risk their lives and the lives of others for a text—IT CAN WAIT!!!!

Christina Kirkland 3 years ago

I confess… it was VERY VERY recently (like just a couple of weeks) that I finally stopped texting/driving. The commercials were always a wake up call but not enough to make me stop. Until… I actually WATCHED someone driving and looking at their phone (dialing a number? inputting GPS? Texting? Who knows…). They looked down, went off the edge of the road, and they flipped their car into a ditch, and I watched it happen in a split second. Now I don’t even bring my phone in the front seat with me unless i’m using GPS. Scared me straight. I’ll pledge for sure!

I admit I used to do it too…I was always like, Yes! I am a super multi-tasker!!! Then I was a passenger in many a vehicle whose drivers texted while driving. It was SCARY to experience, I wanted to grab the wheel, and was reminding them to watch the road….that changed me…I don’t do it anymore.

I think I accidentally pledged 3 times (but that ain’t no accident) just “Mommy Interrupted”; but for a good cause!!!

Jessica 3 years ago

I used to also be guilty of texting and driving. Then the major road I have to travel every day had a HUGE increase in fatal accidents. And a good friend died because of someone who claims road glare but it wasn’t the type of day it was possible. I don’t ever want to be one of those at fault in an accident cause I was texting, or be unaware of someone coming at me because they are texting. The last place I ever want to die or get hurt is in my car. So now I have my phone set to auto text to let people know I am driving, and if they call it goes across my stereo vs. holding the phone.

Like everyone else I used to text and drive until my six year old daughter said one day “mom do you want me to be on one of those commercials because you couldn’t put the phone down and drive?” That was all it took. If a six year old got it, what the hell was my problem!!!! God bless everyone and the phone can wait!!

I used to text and drive…but I justified it by saying that I only texted small things like ok or omw. When my 16 year old daughter started driving I knew I better shape up my act if I expected her to toe the line with regards to texting and driving. It’s NO texting while driving in our family now!

Starrayne 3 years ago

I absolutely will take this pledge. I do not touch my phone when I am behind the wheel unless I am parked. My life means too much to my two little girls to risk it for a message that can wait an extra few minutes!

The Samsung Galaxy series of phones are kind of amazing. My husband has an SII and loves it. He’d be totally jealous if I managed to get one of these. 😉

I can say since having my kiddos I’ve really stopped checking while driving. I do check at lights if I hear it go off.

Amanda 3 years ago

I have been a good role model for my kids and stopped texting while driving. If there is something that just can not wait I pull over. A message that can wait till I get in my driveway or another destination is not worth dying over. I need a new phone….my sound has not worked on mine for a YEAR!

Andrea 3 years ago

I have been guilty of this…. just once. Nothing is important enough that you cannot wait until you can pull over and safely use your phone. A way to make sure is to put your cell in the trunk until you reach your destination!

It’s not worth texting and driving…or even using your phone while driving. My friend was almost killed when a guy t-boned her car because he ran a red light while messing with his phone. Stay safe, get a Bluetooth earpiece if needed. No call, text, or status is worth anyone’s life.

Ohhhh!!! I’ve been eyeing the Galaxy for a while now! I am not a texting driver. I have a teenage son, who is minutes away from getting his license. The thought of HIM texting and driving is enough to deter me. Monkey see, monkey do. At least that’s what I hope!
