‘It Can Wait’ Anti Texting and Driving Campaign to Educate Local Drivers
‘It Can Wait’ Anti Texting and Driving Campaign to Educate Local Drivers

 

The Resource Training Center’s “Alive at 25” program will team up with the AT&T “It Can Wait” anti texting and driving campaign at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, to deliver a simple message — when it comes to texting and driving, it can wait! The program will be offered in the Harlem Road Community Center at 4255 Harlem Road, Amherst.

Offered by The Resource Training Center, Alive at 25 is a unique four-hour course available in Western New York that teaches young drivers to change their approach to driving and think more effectively when behind the wheel. The AT&T It Can Wait program reinforces the fact that texting while driving is now the number one cause of teenage driving fatalities. In fact, each day there are 275 accidents caused by texting while driving.  

“Every day we hear tragic stories about vehicular accidents that could have been easily avoided if texting was taken out of the equation,” said Monic Farrar, director of The Resource Training Center. “There is no text that can’t wait until you safely reach your destination and exit your vehicle. I’m excited to team with AT&T to increase awareness for this cause.”

For more information about the Oct. 6 event, please call 983-2258, email monicafarrar@resourcetraining.org, or visit www.wnyresourcetraining.org or www.itcanwait.com.
