Texting and driving is not a great combination. Even with laws in place, people of many ages fall into the behavior of checking and answering text messages and emails. These actions are dangerous. AT&T continues to spread the message with its It Can Wait campaign.
With the Nashville debut of country superstar’s Tim McGraw “Highway Don’t Care” PSA and It Can Wait proclamations from Mayor Karl Dean and Governor Bill Haslam, the message is clear, texting and driving is not a good combination.
AT&T is encouraging supporters of the movement to help spread the word to their families, friends and communities. They can do this by changing their social profile photos and banner to It Can Wait graphics, and share their personal pledge stories using the hashtag #ItCanWait. All materials such as social graphics and posters will be available for download from ItCanWait.com
Here in Nashville, AT&T Tennessee has partnered with The Governor’s Highway Safety Office, Metro Police, Fifty Forward, The Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, Conexión Americas, Students Against Distracted Driving (SADD), the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corporation, The Country Music Association (CMA) and more to help spread the message.
“In the years since AT&T launched the It Can Wait campaign in 2009, more than 2.5 million people have taken the pledge to never text and drive,” said Joelle Phillips, president, AT&T Tennessee. “By tapping into the power of personal networks and social media, we’ve begun to make texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving.”
