Blodgett: Take the pledge not to text and drive

(Continued)

Thankfully, we are not alone. Companies, government agencies and community groups from across the United States are joining together today, Sept. 19, to raise awareness about texting and driving. The “It Can Wait” initiative is sponsoring a Drive for Pledges day and asking all Americans to take a pledge to not text while driving. This campaign is an important public safety program that has been key to bringing this message home: There is no text that is important enough to risk your life or someone else’s to read or send.

Please join me and tens of thousands of other Americans and take the pledge to not text and drive at www.itcanwait.com. The life you save could be your own.

Jonathan Blodgett is the Essex County district attorney.
