Texting while driving topic at ‘Teen State Summit’

Students from around the state head to Wisconsin Dells tomorrow to discuss the impact of texting while driving. Students from Oak Creek High School, in partnership with the Wisconsin State Patrol, AT&T and the Wisconsin Family Career and Community Leaders of America, organized the Teen State Summit to reinforce the message among their peers of the dangers of texting while driving.

Aside from discussing ways to discourage texting while driving, participants will watch the documentary “The Last Text” about individuals whose lives were drastically changed by the consequences of texting while driving.

While PSAs and adults (who are sometimes guilty themselves) have warned teens about the risks of texting while driving, or any kind of distracted driving. I’m happy to see students take the issue into their own hands to discourage their peers from texting behind the wheel.
