The Girl Scouts have promoted a hashtag campaign, #ItCanWait, to harness positive peer pressure and discourage girls from texting at the wheel.

In addition to the Girl Scouts trending on Twitter with the #ItCanWait hashtag, the organization is also taking the campaign to Facebook and promoting a cross-over to Instagram so visibility is heightened.
