Have you heard of "hashtag#"?
It is a tag that was made, (I believe by AT&T), to type into your cell phone before getting into the car to avoid others from sending you text messages while you are driving. It was made for all who text, but mainly to stop teens from doing it.
Originally Georgia was trying to be the first state to start it.
Oh, really, I have heard of a hashtag and I thought it is related to Twitter. As you can just type in a combination of words for more people to read your tweet? I did not know that it for as you state here. Interesting.
Maybe without the # sign it is for Twitter. My radio announced this one with the # at the end for stopping texts. Since the station is in GA, they suggested GA be the first state to use it.
That is interesting, Kevin, as I have not heard of such.
I checked it and realized that I made one error Faith, it was hastag X (the short version is #X). I forgot the X.
Hi Kevin, thank you for the clarification and keeping us in the know! Have a blessed day.
You are welcome. Sorry again for the slip-up.
In a way this makes sense, but why is it needed? Just because someone sends you a text doesn't mean you have to read it while you're driving. I've never received a text while I've been driving, but I have gotten phone calls. I simply wait until I get to wherever I'm going to check the display. Here's a simple solution for kids (or anyone) who would be tempted to check that incoming text message. Get in the car and, before you fasten your seatbelt, toss your cell phone in the back seat or in the glove box. If you can't reach it, you can't read it.
Yes, Sheila, kind of sad that people do not know how to live using commonsense and something like this has to be thought of instead.
sheila, Unfortunately there are teens, and some others, who still try to answer it getting tickets or causing accidents. They are simply distracted by the ring, beep, whatever. It is easier not to have anyone call.
I checked again on the source and I realized that I forgot the exact word. It is hastag X - the short version is #X. I forgot the X and I only remembered the "hastag" and the "#". Sorry to confuse everyone. :-)
