Students Raise Awareness of Texting & Driving

Posted: Updated:

We all know not to text and drive. But, it's another thing to see the damage that could be done. That's exactly what some Minot High School students demonstrated this morning.

Juniors and seniors at Magic City Campus created posters and a realistic skit that shows a driver texting which then results in hitting a pedestrian.

By actively putting themselves in the situation, students thought it would send a serious message.

"We've had a few deaths these past few years and we don't want that to happen again. So, we want to raise awareness so everybody should know that you shouldn't do it. It's just not worth it," says senior Jacob Borja.

The posters are displayed around the school to remind drivers to put the phone down while they're behind the wheel.
