General McLane Students Learn About the Dangers of Texting While Driving

January 24th, 2013

We all know by now that "texting" while driving is dangerous, but alarming statistics show people are still engaging in the risky behavior.
A new study reported in the USA Today says 78 percent of new mothers with babies in the car who are 2 years or younger will talk on their phones.
And 26 percent say they text or check e-mails while driving with their baby.

Law enforcement officials have said the recent law making texting while driving illegal is tricky to enforce.
That means if you text and drive you might get away with it.

And as human beings, that tempts us to continue the bad behavior.

Students at General McLane recently heard about the dangers of texting while driving from representatives from Jet24, Fox66,, Pennsylvania State Police and the Purchase and George Law Firm.
