MVU’s Driver Education Instructors invited the Vermont Safety Council to bring the Turn Off Texting Program to MVU on October 13th & 14th, 2011. Students experienced the consequences of attempting to text while driving.

Even though teen students are aware of the dangers associated with texting while driving, they ignore these warnings once they obtain their license. Hopefully, experienceing this activity will help to reinforce the dangers involved with the distraction of texting while driving so that they do not become the next statistic.
