Texting and driving? No way!
i never text and drive tried it once when i first started driving and knew it wasn't for me i wasn't coordinated enough to do it and i am always actively watching the road. also don't listen to music mostly watching and trying to figure out what the idiot driver in front of me is going to do :)
Those saying kids shouldn't drive until 21 haven't thought that statement through. If an eighteen year-old can join the military, be given a weapon, and then thrown into combat, then our society must think 18 year olds are old enough to drive (and drink for that matter-but that's another issue). I was married in the military at 19; not driving was not an option. However, saying that doesn't mean I'm opposed to devices that make it impossible to text and drive. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death of people ages 1 to 24 - obviously (one would hope) those between 1-15 were not the drivers of the vehicles. Cars are such an integral part of most of our lives we sometimes forget how dangerous they can be.
Glad to see AT&T acting responsibly. But I have a suggestion.
Instead of "It Can Wait,", can you guys name your ad campaign "Put The Phone Down, You IDIOT,"
haha adults can text and drive but not teens us adults we are lucky
An app or option on the iPhone that receives on second plane all calls and messages or notifications, parents can choose to activate it on force, by code. The app un-blocks when the car is of. Obvious emergency option.
Just one extra point, as far as I understand up to age 25 people are considered more at risk when at driving (and that's why insurance rates go down after 25)... so going by logic I guess only people over 25 and less than 60 should be allowed to drive? And, those people still get into accident and do stupid things... so, I think the point is just being conscious and instead of blaming others for the way they drive, just think, does this apply to me? If it does, then just don't text and drive.
So, I've done it before (and I'm over 21), but all these commercials do raise awareness and I pledge not to text and drive, and hopefully all of you will too.
If you live in places like Florida, USA, you pretty much need a car for everything. This survey was answered by teenagers, but adults also text and drive. Adults also drink and drive, and do other things. Teenagers are more likely to take risks, but also, if you live in places like FL you would agree that older folks are the most dangerous at driving (but again you need a car here for everything). The point is, all of us, including adults (I'm 26) should not text and drive.
is this app avalible on android phones @ShareATT
Driving is just too much of a responsibility for 16 and 17 year olds. They're not fully mature, they're not adults, and their accident rates are much higher than for older age groups.
I'm 24 and have never driven a car before in my life. The brain isn't even fully mature until 25, and kids who are 16, 17 and driving will probably make very bad choices.
There's nothing wrong with sending a sms while driving. It actually prevents you from crashing
Lol if you're under 21 you probably shouldn't be driving.
Maybe you should just discourage kids from driving period. Gas prices are very high, cars are expensive, lots of people drive and text even when told not to. I would generally discourage people under 21 from driving.
I was just going to say that! i whole heartedly agree!
