real stories about lives altered or ended by someone’s decision to tex
t and drive.

It CanWait 
movement and take the pledge to never text and drive at www.ItCanWait.com as par 
t of “Drive 4 PledgesDay.” The effort is part of the national
It Can Wait 
movement to encourage all drivers to take the pledge on
September 19 and spread the word to their families, friends and communities. Nearly 2,000 “Drive 4 Pledges”
activities were held across the country today, including at more than 1,500 high schools.
“Studies show teens continue to text and drive, even though they know it’s dangerous and against the law,” said
Scott T. VanderSanden
, president of AT&T Wisconsin. “We’re challe
nging all drivers, especially our teens, to
take the pledge to never text and drive and make it a lifelong commitment.”
