Take out your wireless device. Read the last text message you received out loud. Would reading or responding to that text message from behind the wheel of a moving vehicle be worth the risk of getting into a car accident or worse? Chances are, the text message could wait.

In today's 24/7/365 world, staying connected is no longer an option. It's a necessity. With a tenfold increase in text messaging over the last three years according to CTIA - The Wireless Association, there is no question that texting is increasingly becoming the way many communicate today. And, for many, the allure to quickly read and respond - even from behind the wheel of a moving vehicle - can be tempting. But texting and driving is dangerous. 

The goal is to educate all wireless users, but especially teen drivers, that there is a smart way to text. 

The message is simple, yet vital: When it comes to texting and driving, it can wait.
