Just Wait

Posted: Updated:

We have seen too many stories about serious accidents that happen because someone is distracted while driving.

That's why KFBB is proud to present: JUST WAIT.

Here is what we would like you to do: Make a pledge to stop texting, playing with your GPS, changing the song on your ipod and anything that distracts you while driving. Making a pledge could save your life or someone else's. It's easy. Just click on the box to the right and fill out The Just Wait pledge. You can print it out and keep it in your car as a reminder. Ask your family, coworkers, congregation and clubs to do the same.

  • Using a cell phone while driving can delay a person's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent.
  • Drivers who use hand-held devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves.
  • Driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent.
  • Eighty percent of all crashes and 65 percent of near crashes involve some type of distraction.

So Take the Pledge and help us put an end to Distracted Driving. Because no mater what it is, JUST WAIT.
