Providence Journal, Opinion: Making Progress Against Texting And Driving

Posted by AT&T Rhode Island Team

From Patricia Jacobs, AT&T New England President, in Providence Journal:

Ninety-eight percent of Americans know that texting and driving is dangerous, yet nearly nine-in-ten people still admit to using their smartphones while driving, and nearly four-in-ten say that distracted driving is a habit. Sadly, this pattern of behavior has had deadly consequences far too many times.

Eight years ago, AT&T started our It Can Wait initiative to work with local community leaders across the country to inform drivers about the dangers of distracted driving and to encourage them to stay safe on the road.

Rhode Island has been a national leader in this effort under the leadership and commitment of Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin. Through his passion for this issue and unrelenting efforts, Kilmartin has brought It Can Wait to young drivers in nearly every high school in the state, making him one of the nation’s leading voices against texting and driving.
