Our society is becoming aware that texting and driving can be fatal but far too many people still ignore the risk. AT&T has begun a movement called #ItCanWait which is geared towards making texting and driving as unacceptable as drinking and driving.
Since the movement was launched in 2009, more than 2 million no-texting-while-driving pledges have been logged through ItCanWait.com, social sites including Facebook, text-to-pledge and events.
We're working together with AT&T to help spread the word and have engaged a select group of #LatinaBloggers who want to work with us to encourage their readers to take the pledge. These bloggers are aware that texting while driving is involved in 100,000+ vehicle crashes each year, often causing injuries and deaths, and have decided to take the pledge themselves and join us in promoting this important movement.
