A resource for all wireless users on the dangers of texting while driving.
Take out your wireless device. Read the last text message you received out loud. Would reading or responding to that text message from behind the wheel of a moving vehicle be worth the risk of getting into a car accident or worse? Chances are, the text message could wait.
In today's 24/7/365 world, staying connected is no longer an option. It's a necessity. With a tenfold increase in text messaging over the last three years according to CTIA -- The Wireless Association, there is no question that texting is increasingly becoming the way many communicate today. And, for many, the allure to quickly read and respond -- even from behind the wheel of a moving vehicle -- can be tempting. But texting and driving is dangerous.
Our goal is to educate all wireless users, but especially teen drivers, that there is a smart way to text.
Our message is simple, yet vital: When it comes to texting and driving, it can wait.
