This is a sponsored post on behalf of AT&T. It is a cause I have long supported without compensation and all opinions are mine.
About a month ago I confessed that I check my phone when I shouldn’t while driving. What I wasn’t prepared for was how many of you had similar confessions. Apparently we all know better, but don’t always do better.
This week AT&T tweeted out this graphic with my pledge I made back in April as to why I wouldn’t be texting and driving anymore.
Most of my readers are moms (with a few dads and single ladies in the mix) and know most parents think there are few things more precious than their own children. We would do anything for our children and love them fiercely.
So why is it that text is so dang important?
Did you know that AT&T has an app that sends a customizable auto-replay message to incoming texts when the car is moving 25 mph or faster. The DriveMode app lets your friends know that, yes they are important, but staying safe is more important.
My favorite part of the app is that the reply is customizable. I am sure most people write some sort of thoughtful or professional reply. I plan to download the app this week and report back as to how it is working for me. And not shockingly I want a totally unboring, slightly sarcastic response.
So what say you readers? What should my auto response be?
