No Text Is Worth The Risk. #ItCanWait

Through the “It Can Wait” campaign, TMA is educating others about the dangers of texting while driving in support of client AT&T.  Take the pledge to never text and  drive   here.

Vehicle crashes are the   leading cause of death for young Americans, and  with Memorial Day approaching we are heading into the “100 Deadliest Days” for teen drivers on the road.  July and  August are the deadliest months for 16- and  17-year-old drivers, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

AT&T has shared some even more sobering statistics:

  • Drivers are 23 times more likely to get in an accident while texting
  • 100,000 crashes occur every year involving drivers who are texting
  • 75% of teens say texting & driving is “common” among their friends
