Summer Safety

It Can Wait

It Can Wait

People who read and send text messages while driving are more likely to be in a crash.* This summer, and all year long, AT&T remains focused on educating the public - especially teens - on the dangers of texting and driving. After all, no text is worth dying for. Our goal is to save lives and make texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving. You are invited to take the pledge and join the conversation: #ItCanWait. Find out more at itcanwait.com.
