We all know that using a phone while driving is dangerous — the National Safety Council estimates there have been over 800,000 crashes in the US involving drivers using cell phones and texting so far this year. As one seller of the products and services at the center of the issue, AT&T has a responsibility to educate customers about safe driving habits, and its “It Can Wait” information campaign is part of that effort. Today we’re learning about another part — AT&T is developing software parents can use to remotely turn off voice and text transmission on their children’s cell phones while driving; revealed in a video (below) for its nationwide “never text and drive” pledge campaign.
