    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AT&T) - AT&T continues its mission to educate the public about texting while driving. As part of the "It Can Wait" movement, AT&T is taking the texting while driving simulator across the state to safely re-create the eyes-off-the-road and hands-off-the-wheel experience of texting while driving.

    Closing out the year, AT&T's simulator made stops at two high schools in Springdale earlier this week and will be in Little Rock and Pine Bluff this Thursday and Friday.

    The "It Can Wait" movement has one simple message: No text is worth dying for...It Can Wait. Since the beginning of the campaign, more than one million pledges have been logged, but it doesn't stop there. AT&T continues to reiterate its message and encourages the public to do the same and spread the message to friends and family.


    On Thursday, AT&T and City Year representatives will be on-site to manage the simulator experience and capture pledges from J.A. Fair students.

    And weather permitting Friday, Rogers resident Merry Dye, who is featured in AT&T's The Last Text documentary, will be present to share her story with Pine Bluff students, conveying first-hand the deadly effects of texting while driving. The Last Text documentary has been viewed over 3 million times. The Jefferson County Sheriff will also be on hand for media interviews.

    Students experiencing the texting while driving simulator and take the pledge. The "Last Text" documentary will be shown while on-site.
