With April being distracted driving awareness month, students at East Fairmont High School took a pledge to not text and drive while helping spread the word about the dangers of distracted driving. With the support of The Miley Legal Group and Teens Against Distracted Driving, Bailey Frederick, Lexie Myers and Patrick Thompson created an awareness campaign to encourage safe driving habits in their community. The group was able to generate a huge response, signing over 200 pledges by students and parents alike.
“The primary purpose of creating Teens Against Distracted Driving, was to not only raise awareness of distracted driving, but to specifically target teenage drivers as they become licensed and enter our roadways,” stated Tim Miley, owner of The Miley Legal Group.
“It means a lot to me that others, especially teenagers, are motivated to help spread the word about distracted driving,” said Jason Epstein. “Teenagers are the biggest group that are affected by this problem because this is their primary form of communication. If we continue educating others about the dangers of distracted driving, we can help keep our roads safe for everyone,” continued Jason.
