PLEASE READ! AT&T Initiative--It Can Wait--No Text on Board Pledge Day #itcanwait @ATT

Over 100,000 people a year are killed or injured in accidents when a driver is texting and driving.  Texting and driving is just plain dumb.  You are 23 times more likely to be in an accident while texting.  And what is even more stupid is the people who say that it is the other drivers--that they can text and be safe.  NO YOU CAN'T!  I can't tell you the number of times I have seen people driving erratically only to notice that they are texting.  Put your phone down when in the car.  Better yet, turn it off.  There is no message that is so important that you should risk your life or someone else's.

Kudos to AT&T for their initiative It Can Wait.  September 19 has been deemed No Text on Board pledge day.  Visit and take the pledge today.  Then, download the online banner at and addit to your profile picture on Twitter and Facebook.  Let your family and friends know!

Please, please, please watch this video below and afterwards, share it (or this post) with everyone you know.  It might save your life, your child's life, your friend's life, your parent's life.  Just do it.

My kids know that if I get a text, then it's up to them to check it our - it can wait! There are too many valuables in my car (my kids and me!) and in the car coming at me to risk texting! Thanks for this!
