We just wrapped an amazing summer filled with hours upon hours of family time, including multiple road trips. Every single time we traveled farther than just around town, we encountered at least one vehicle drifting in and out of their lane, coming dangerously close to causing an accident. And every single time we managed to pass them to drive into safer waters, we noticed that the driver had a phone in hand.
Every. Single. Time.
The truth is that there is no way to text and drive safely, yet people think that they can just send that one quick text and then get back to focusing on the road. Maybe you’ve even had that thought, sent that text.
On September 19th I’m going to be speaking to a room full of 10th and 11th graders about the dangers of texting and driving, and I’m bringing a secret weapon with me in my campaign – the texting and driving simulator. I’m sure that many of these teens will have grown up watching their parents send the occasional (or not so occasional) text from behind the wheel, and many of them likely believe that they are able to do so safely. My hope is that if the statistics and testimonials that I share don’t convince the kids that It Can Wait, that the simulator will.
So are you ready to try it?

Here was my result…
