Four national wireless service providers want you to make a pledge to never text and drive.
Drivers are urged to join the It Can Wait movement.
Drive 4 Pledges Day kicked of yesterday focusing on getting individuals and communities involved in taking the pledge.
The North Dakota Safety Council is joining schools and organizations all over the nation to spread the word about making this commitment.
"We just say put your phones away and take care of that when your car is parked. It's a huge battle because everybody thinks I'm just looking at one thing, you know, it's like eating in the car. But texting and looking at your phone happens repeatedly and constant. It's again and again. And it takes your brain off what your activity should be which is driving," says Terry Weaver, Traffic Safety Program Coordinator, NDSC.
If you would like to make pledge to never text and drive, text the word "PLEDGE" to 464329.
Yesterday, a total of 3,053,447 pledges were made in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota.
