East Fairmont High School Students Take Pledge Against Distracted Driving


East Fairmont High School students took a pledge against distracted driving.

Today, two of them received a check from the Miley Legal Group for their commitment. Each received $50.

Teens Against Distracted Driving have been campaigning all week to teach students about common distractions while on the road.

“We’ve had plenty of friends that last year, past years, that have been distracted driving, gotten into accidents and totaled their cars, almost lose their lives, so it’s something that should definitely be talked about more. It’s important,” said Patrick Thompson, of Teens Against Distracted Driving.

Students hope to drive home this message before their peers attend prom this weekend.
