‘It Can Wait’ program highlights the dangers of distracted driving

Texting While Driving

The It Can Wait campaign is a free program you can bring to your high schools to help educate students on the dangers of distracted driving and encourage them to take the pledge to keep their eyes on the road and not their phones. The campaign is a partnership between the Wisconsin State Patrol, AT&T, and AAA to hold events at high schools across the state to drive home the dangers of distracted driving. During these assemblies, students watch an AT&T video called “The Last Text” about lives altered by someone’s decision to text and drive.
