IL Lt. Gov. takes “no texting while driving” pledge

Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon wants students to stop texting while driving, and to make the point, she signed an "It Can Wait" pledge Tuesday at John A. Logan Community College in Carterville. Simon was part of a ceremony to announce a statewide anti-texting while driving initiative with AT&T Illinois and the Illinois Department of Transportation. The "No Text on Board Pledge Day." initiative is set for September 19th. AT&T is asking drivers to promise never to text and drive again. IDOT is assisting with electronic highway signs reminding drivers not to text and drive.
