A local company is educating students on the dangers of texting and driving.
Transportation Solutions teaches Drivers Education, but they are
also now giving back to the community by educating teens in nine local high
schools. They are teaching teens about the consequences of texting and driving. They
hand out book marks with statistics, and they encourage teens to pull over if
they feel the need to text.
On average, teenagers send 3,000 text messages per
month, and the texts they send in the car can be deadly. When sending a text message
while driving, your eyes are taken off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds.
Companies like Transportation Solutions are reaching one
teen at a time, in hopes of saving lives.
