AT&T’s Texting and driving campaign underway

(WTVM) - We all know the abbreviations LOL and OMG, but texting behind the wheel could mean DOA.

Starting this week, AT&T is urging all drivers in Georgia to stop texting and driving.

Seventy-five percent of teens surveyed said texting while driving is common among their friends.

More than 100,000 crashes a year involve drivers who are texting, and texting drivers are 23 times more likely to be in an accident.
