FLORESVILLE -- Melissa Popham and her staff with AT&T Mobility in Floresville join AT&T corporate employees nationwide Wednesday, Sept. 19, in the wireless provider’s “Don’t Text and Drive” campaign.
The campaign, initially launched two years ago, raises awareness of the dangers of texting and driving.
“We asked drivers to take a look at the last text message they sent and consider whether that message was worth risking serious injury or death,” wrote Paul Roth, president of retail sales and service with AT&T Mobility.
So far, more than 136,000 have taken the pledge with AT&T not to text and drive on Facebook and their employee tSpace community. The company launched its AT&T DriveMode app, sponsored teen summits, and toured a driving simulator across the country.
On Aug. 15, AT&T Mobility called for a “Don’t Text and Drive” day on Sept. 19, to focus attention on the problem and ask people to commit to stop texting and driving, forever.
For more information, visit itcanwait.org, for an opportunity to take the pledge not to text and drive. The DriveMode app also can be downloaded from the site.
