CARSTAR Flagstaff Shows Support for NABC “It Can Wait” Campaign

For 2016, CARSTAR Flagstaff has partnered with Great Circle Media and Flagstaff Subaru to encourage teens to take the pledge to stop distracted driving.

CARSTAR Flagstaff announced it is hoping to help reduce the danger of texting and driving on the road with its support of the National Auto Body Council (NABC) “It Can Wait” campaign, offered by CARSTAR collision repair facilities around the country.

Through the program, CARSTAR Flagstaff, owned by Jeff Stanley and Matt Frederick, is teaming up with the NABC and others in the collision industry to urge people to share their commitment to never text and drive through the NABC It Can Wait campaign, available at www.ItCanWait.com.

For 2016, CARSTAR Flagstaff has partnered with Great Circle Media and Flagstaff Subaru to encourage teens to take the pledge to stop distracted driving. By doing so, they will be entered to win a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. Teens can take the pledge by visiting www.itcanwaitNAZ.com.

The program will kick off on March 1st and run through next February.

“At CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts, we are on the front lines of helping people improve their safety on the road,” said Stanley. “Through the NABC It Can Wait campaign, we can educate drivers about the dangers of texting and driving and engage drivers, their families and friends in putting down the phone and focusing on the road.”

In addition to Great Circle Media and Flagstaff Subaru, CARSTAR Flagstaff has enlisted the help of local police departments and high schools to help educate teens on the consequences of driving while distracted.

One-in-three people who have seen the texting-while-driving message from the It Can Wait campaign say they’ve changed their driving habits. The campaign has inspired more than five million pledges never to text and drive and launched the “From One Second To The Next” documentary, which has received more than three million views since Aug. 8, 2013.
