Just yesterday I was catching up on the news during my flight and was saddened to hear of another tragic car accident caused by the driver losing control of the vehicle. Why? Texting while driving. It’s a story that has become too common, but one that we can stop. Next week, on September, 19th, join me spread the word to save lives. All four major cell phone carriers and 200+ other partner organizations have come together on It Can Wait, a national push to stop texting while driving. The fundamental objective? Save lives.
