AT&T Asking ND Drivers to Stop Texting and Driving| 8/15/2012
AT&T is also asking people from all over to join together on September 19 to commit to never text and drive again.
"More than 100,000 times each year, an automobile crashes and people are injured or die because the driver was texting while driving," said Cheryl Riley, director, AT&T External Affairs for North Dakota, citing a statistic from the National Safety Council.
"Our goal is to save lives," Riley said. "I hear from far too many people whose lives have been forever changed by a texting-while-driving accident, and together, we want to spread the word about how deadly a single text can be. We`d like to see texting and driving become as unacceptable as drinking and driving."
AT&T Stores throughout North Dakota will also hand out t-shirts and stickers to customers who make the pledge.
