Last Friday, an event was held in Seattle which sought to get across to citizens the dangers posed by texting at the wheel. The presentation, which was put together by AT & T and featured the assistance of the Washington State Patrol and a local radio station, was intended to spread awareness about the It Can Wait campaign, which attempts to get drivers around the country to sign a pledge stating that they’ll never again text and drive at the same time. The hope was that 500 or more people would drop by the Northgate Mall in order to affix their signatures to the ever-growing pledge. The WSP had a vehicle involved in a texting-based crash on hand, and a member of the aforementioned radio station was also there to relate her own eye-opening experience with texting and driving.
