Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College has announced it has become part of AT&T’s the It Can Wait campaign to put an end to texting and driving.


Drivers who read or send texts while behind the wheel are more likely to cause crashes – often leading to life changing injuries and deaths


Southern will help take the It Can Wait movement one step further with a “Drive 4 Pledges Day” on September 19. On this day, It Can Wait advocates will be asking every driver to join in making a personal commitment not to text and drive – and recruiting others to do the same.


There are many easy ways to get involved in making texting and driving a thing of the past.


Once you take the pledge online, ask five other people to vow never to text and drive, or simply share your pledge and what it means to you through your social media channels. Here is a sample post:
