AT&T starts campaign to warn people about texting while driving
The campaign will be seen within months on television ads, online, in print and heard on radio. In addition, parents, high school guidance educators and teens can visit AT&T's online resource center by clicking on this link. The carrier has also started a Facebook app to help others pledge not to text and drive. The address is www.facebook.com/att. AT&T will promote the pledge through a "twitition" on Twitter. You can follow this at @ShareATT. While the network operator says that the message is for all drivers, it is aiming at younger drivers and will contribute $250,000 to one or more non-profit organizations focused on youth safety.

I dunno. I think people who text when driving (including me), deserve exactly what they get. Wait until you get a red light or something. And understand your bad decision effects other people's lives.

It reminds me of their old campaign: "3G Coverage and AT&T: It Can Wait!" LOL

i text and drive all the time. i never look at the buttons though, so my eyes are always on the road. it seems when i have a car full of people i get more distracted than texting.
