Texting and Driving: It Can Wait

When you take just a minute to look at the last text message on your wireless device, consider whether it would be worth causing a serious accident, possibly one that could take a life … or several lives. When you look at it this way, there’s no text that can’t wait.

To drive this point home, the BSA and AT&T have teamed up to offer Scouts and leaders the opportunity to take the “It Can Wait” pledge to not text and drive. And, by encouraging at least 10 friends to do the same, they can earn a limited-edition “Txting & Drivng” patch (while supplies last).

To participate, have your Scouts go to the main BSA Facebook page and click the “It Can Wait” app in the left column.

Learn more about this initiative (and watch an “It Can Wait” video) on Scouting magazine’s Bryan on Scouting blog.

    I tried looking for the patch it can wait in the BSA Facebook on the left side of the column but could not find it.
