CEA is proud to support the It Can Wait campaign and the National Drive 4 Pledges Day on September 19th; together, we can make a difference.  Thank you for considering taking the pledge to never text and drive. 
 
Below you’ll find links to the It Can Wait pledge form, the It Can Wait documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog, information about the dangers of texting and driving, and instructions on how to share and spread the word that you have taken the pledge.
 
IT CAN WAIT PLEDGE FORM
In signing this form, you are pledging to yourself to never text and drive.  Keep your signed pledge form in a place to remind you of your promise to drive safely and without the distraction of text messaging.  Share this form with your family, friends and colleagues, and ask them to consider signing as well.
 
“FROM ONE SECOND TO THE NEXT” DOCUMENTARY BY WERNER HERZOG
Injuring or even killing someone because you were texting while driving is a life-changing experience.  There are countless stories of people who took their eyes off the road for a second and ended up in an accident that changed their lives and the lives of others forever.  People who are living with the consequences of those experiences are the focus of a powerful new documentary created by acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog to reach millions with a message on the dangers of texting and driving.
