NABC Urges Members to Pledge Against Texting While Driving
Sept. 3, 2013—The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that is has joined AT&T and other wireless carriers to promote the anti-texting and driving campaign, It Can Wait.
In recognition of Drive 4 Pledges Day, Sept. 19, the NABC urged all of its members and others in the collision industry to join the nationwide effort by pledging to never text and drive.
The NABC is urging drivers to make the pledge online at go-att.us/NABC. The campaign is a collaborative effort between major wireless carriers AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.
“This is one of the most important issues facing our communities today,” said Chuck Sulkala, executive director of the NABC. “Our collision industry knows far too well the impact of texting and driving. We can salvage vehicles but we cannot salvage a life. We urge our friends and colleagues in our industry to take a leadership role and join us to help save lives.”
On Drive 4 Pledges Day, NABC member companies will be hosting a variety of promotional events in their local communities to educate employees and the general public, particularly teens, about the dangers of texting while driving.
