Want a chance to win a brand-new Galaxy S III from AT&T and Android Police? Today, you can! As part of the 'It Can Wait' campaign, we're giving away a red AT&T Galaxy S III complete with an anti-texting and driving accessory pack.
It Can Wait
Texting and driving is bad. You shouldn't do it. AT&T agrees, and to date, they've managed to get over a million people to sign a pledge promising not to text and drive. It may sound a little trivial or silly, but texting and driving maims - and even kills - far too many people. In the US alone, 100,000 texting-related accidents occur every year. Looking away for even a couple seconds while on the road at speed is dangerous. Looking away with one hand on the wheel, while your focus is on hitting a tiny little virtual key? That's potentially lethal.
A few years ago, I was involved in a collision that occurred because I was mentally distracted, and luckily, both I and the other driver walked away without injury - though my car was totaled. I've been a lot more cautious since, and realize I was extremely fortunate that it didn't end worse. Don't text and drive, and don't drive distracted. Remember, you're operating a high-speed, multi-ton piece of machinery - not a bumper car.
You can also check out the 'It Can Wait' texting and driving simulator, which shows you the consequences of texting while driving.
To raise awareness about this serious issue, we're giving away free stuff! You can win a Galaxy S III 'It Can Wait' pack, which includes all the following neat stuff:
- One AT&T Galaxy S III, in red
- An 'It Can Wait' Galaxy S III case
- An 'It Can Wait" t-shirt
- 2 'It Can Wait' thumbbands (to remind your thumbs)
- 2 'It Can Wait' stickers
- A Skinit coupon for a free large skin
