Tomorrow night is the AT&T It Can Wait hackathon in Santa Monica, California. AT&T is sponsoring this event to discourage texting while driving to reduce distractions and make us better drivers.
How often have you seen erratic drivers on the road fumbling with their smartphones. AT&T has created an app that helps you avoid ever receiving a distracting text while you’re behind the wheel.
When enabled, the app sends a customizable auto-reply message to incoming texts, letting your friends know you’re behind the wheel and will reply when it’s safe.
AT&T wants to see what more can be done and is sponsoring Friday night’s Hackathon to see what new app can prevent distracted driving. Register here and take the pledge as well and say “It Can Wait” next time you receive a text while driving.
