(Dallas, Ga. – Sept. 18, 2013) AT&T will be at the Paulding Campus of Chattahoochee Technical College to encourage everyone to not text and drive. The national campaign is designed to help save lives. Students will be asked to sign a pledge for a lifelong commitment of not texting and driving.
Chattahoochee Technical College is joining other technical colleges in Georgia to support the effort. Drivers who read or send texts while behind the wheel are more likely to cause crashes – often leading to life changing injuries and deaths. To put an end to texting and driving, AT&T launched the It Can Wait campaign.
On September 19, Drive 4 Pledges Day, supporters of the movement are called to help spread the word to their families, friends and communities. Advocates will be encouraged to do things like change their social profile photos and banner to It Can Wait graphics, and share their personal pledge stories using the hashtag #ItCanWait. Offline activations will include hosting pledge drives and distributing posters in their schools, workplaces and neighborhoods. All materials such as social graphics and posters will be available for download from ItCanWait.com.
Officials from AT&T will be at the Paulding Campus of Chattahoochee Technical College in Building B on Thursday, Sept. 19. Pledges can also be signed online at www.ItCanWait.com.
