College Students Experience the Dangers of Texting While Driving

Arrive Alive Tour in town to show college students the dangers of texting while driving.
The Arrive Alive tour made a pit stop at ACU to show students the dangers of texting and driving.

According to Chris Bennett with Arrive Alive, for every one drunk driving accident, there are four texting while driving accidents.

Students were able to drive a real car while wearing simulation glasses. Most students did not drive for much longer than thirty seconds before crashing into a pedestrian or another car.

For some students, texting while driving has only brought heartache. Kayla Flatley, freshman at ACU, explained that she recently lost a close friend who was texting while driving. Unfortunately, her story is far too common. Bennett, who does these demonstrations all over the country, explained that when he asks if anyone knows of someone who has been in an accident while texting, most all people raise their hands.

Over 5,000 people in the United States die each year from texting and driving. To find out more information, visit http://www.bigcountryhomepage.com/no-txt-bc
