We know that text messaging is here to stay, but it's also become clear that reading or responding to text messages while driving can have serious consequences; that led the cast of The CW’s Melrose Place to join AT&T in a new public service announcement to get out the message: “Txtng and Drivng … It Can Wait.”

The CW, working with AT&T, will spotlight the campaign on Tuesday's episode of Melrose Place, to be followed by a public service announcement featuring stars Katie Cassidy and Michael Rady.
