ATT recognized for anti-texting while driving campaign

ATT was recognized at the November 13, 2012, St. Lucie County School Board meeting for its “It Can Wait” project, an awareness campaign to educate and inform teenagers about the dangers of texting while driving. The national campaign made a stop at Treasure Coast High School (TCHS) recently, with a simulated experience for young drivers what can happen in the split second of texting on a cell phone while operating a vehicle.
