Editorial: Texting danger must be curbed

(Continued)

The coalition, in cooperation with AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, is urging people of all ages to:

▶ Take a pledge to never text and drive by visiting www.trafficsafetycoalition.com or www.itcanwait.org.

▶ Download AT&T’s DriveMode app. When it is enabled and the vehicle is moving 25 mph, the app automatically sends a customizable auto-reply message to incoming texts, letting people know you’re driving and will reply when you can.

▶ Watch the AT&T Don’t Text While Driving documentary (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_

If you have children of driving age, it is crucial that you stress to them that the danger caused by this common practice is very real.

Share this editorial and this driving advice: No texting, no exceptions.
