AT&T Video Warns Against ‘TXTNG & DRIVNG’

AT&T has released a 10-minute documentary to educate teens about the dire consequences of texting while driving. The video is the latest from the company’s “It Can Wait” campaign, which launched in March. AT&T plans to distribute the short film to government agencies, educators, policymakers, and others.

AT&T also has a network of organizations, such as AT&T’s Teen Advisory Council, which will feature the documentary. The campaign has a website and more information can be found on the company’s YouTube page and AT&T’s official Facebook page. The news release for the documentary says tens of thousands have made the pledge not to text and drive since the campaign’s launch.

“Our message is simple, yet vital: When it comes to texting and driving, it can wait,” the AT&T site says.
