By WSIL Manager

WSIL-TV -- AT&T is asking Americans to sign a pledge not to text behind the wheel as part of a campaign against distracted driving.

The issue has gained national attention, with more crashes linked to the use of phones. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has declared it a "national epidemic."

In Illinois, Governor Quinn is supporting AT&T's effort to have drivers sign the no-texting pledge on September 19th. Users can sign up at ItCanWait.com.
