57% of people are more likely to stop driving distracted if a friend or passenger pressures them to. That means half of people are just waiting for someone to tell them to stop!

AT&T has kicked off a social media campaign, during this, Distracted Driving Awareness Month, to get people to do just that!  The company is encouraging everyone to #TagYourHalf in social media channels and take the “It Can Wait” pledge.

AT&T launched the It Can Wait campaign in 2010 to address the dangerous habit of texting and driving. But as smartphones have evolved, drivers are doing more than just texting while driving; they’re surfing the web, taking selfies, video chatting and more. The It Can Wait campaign message is now focused on this simple but vital message: Distracted driving is NEVER ok. You’re never alone on the road, when you’re alone in your car.
