Do you ever text when driving? Does anyone you know text while driving? Although most agree it is dangerous and unacceptable to text when driving, many people still do it, and come up with excuses as to why it's OK for them. At ReduceMyInsurance.net, we encourage everyone to wait to respond to a text message, wait to open an email, and in general, put the phone down when driving. Many accidents can be avoided by waiting to pick up the phone. AT&T launched a campaign to educate folks about the dangers of texting while driving. The following excerpt is from AT&T's ItCanWait campaign.

"Texting while driving was estimated to be involved in 200,000+ vehicle crashes in 2012, often involving injuries and deaths. That's why AT&T is committed to putting an end to texting and driving. We're focused on educating the public - especially teens - on the dangers of texting and driving. No text is worth a life...It Can Wait."

We echo this sentiment concerning texting while driving. Please wait to send a text, an email, look at a notification, or anything else that involves looking at a phone, tablet, or any mobile device.
