LoJack is a proud champion of the It Can Wait campaign and strives to inspire
customers to not only pledge to never text and drive, but to also become a
safe driving advocate. Supporters of the campaign are encouraged to help
spread the word among their friends, family and community. Additionally,
participants can engage in the online conversation surrounding the campaign by
using the hashtag #ItCanWait to share their pledge stories.

"LoJack's foundation of partnering with local law enforcement agencies to
improve the safety of our communities includes the important task of
safeguarding against the growing epidemic of distracted driving," said Randy

with law enforcement, community partners and customers to address this
challenge and urge you to take the pledge to never text and drive."

  oInfographic: "Eyes on the Road: The Challenges of Safe Driving" highlights
    more than 25 real and tangible distractions that a driver might encounter
    on any given day – from cell phone use and pets in the front seat to
    erratic pedestrian behavior and children demanding a driver's attention.
  oe-booklet: "Teen Smarts" provides drivers with an abundance of information
    on the safe driving topic, including an overview of the problem,
    statistics around fatalities and types of distractions, and overall tips
    for driving more safely on the roads and highways today.
  oSurvey Results: More than 150 students were surveyed at the 2013

         serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately
