They are competitors, but Thursday the four major wireless phone carriers are joining forces in an effort to stop texting while driving. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon are all taking part in Drive 4 Pledges Day.
While most people have an idea that texting while driving is dangerous, the message sometimes goes unheard, especially with young people.
AT&T says company research shows teens text about five time more than the average adult.
"The New York State troopers tell us that teens, just by nature of their inexperience, are most susceptible to accidents," said Bob Holliday, AT&T's vice president/general manager for Upstate New York. "So you put those things together, that's a very dangerous cocktail, so to speak."
On YNN's Your Morning News Holliday showed off a free online texting and driving simulator people can try at home.
