AT&T Collects Over 4 Million No Texting and Driving Pledges

Posted: Updated:

One cell phone company is trying to turn the tide against texting while driving and they're asking you to pledge to stop.

AT&T says 43 percent of teenagers admit to texting and driving; and while the company says parents play a large role in bringing that percentage down, the company hopes to do its part.

So far on its website AT&T has collected over 4 million electronic pledges to not text while driving.

“The whole point is to keep it in the forefront of everyone's minds. Too many times you hear a story on the news that someone has gotten into a car crash because they are checking their phone,” said Aaron Bailey of AT&T in Charlottesville.

An electronic pledge can be shared with friends through Facebook and other social media sites.
