This is part of a paid campaign I’ve been working on for a few months now, all opinions are my own.
Our Pledge party is in the works and I’m so excited to be putting it on all by myself. I’m working with AT&T and I’ll be filling swag bags probably tomorrow night or on the day of the event. We’ll be hanging out at the beautiful Willows Lodge who is waiving the rental fee for me because they are so awesome. We’ll be in the Library room and the table won’t be in there. It’s a casual event with appetizers and I’ll be playing videos from the AT&T It Can Wait Website portal.
It Can Wait
Don’t do it, don’t drive and text.
Did you see that? Those who text while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in some type of safety critical event as compared to drivers who don’t text while driving.
And I know we’re really hard and focused on teenagers but I’m here to tell you that parents are just as guilty if not more guilty of texting while driving.
76 percent of teens and 83 percent of parents consider the dangers of distracted driving to be comparable to drunk driving, yet parents are 40 percent more likely to check their phones while driving than their teenage children
We need to continue to educate our children to keep their phones down while driving but we need to be better examples. Maybe even all phones should come with software on them that disable calls and texts while the car is in motion. Plus, if you’re coming to my event on Thursday at 7 PM at Willows Lodge we’ll have a simulation machine where you can try to drive with a phone that’s busy receiving texts and calls. It’s your choice to answer it or not.
