Distracted Driving

The teachers in the Health and Physical Education department have been working on a campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. From eating to texting, distractions take drivers’ eyes away from the road and can cause terrible accidents. Here is a video the students have produced to call attention to the dangers of distracted driving.
