As part of a national campaign aimed at educating everyone about the dangers of texting while driving, a Florida high school in Tampa recently had 1,800 students sign a pledge never to engage in the dangerous practice. The Wharton High School PTSA led a four-month project to upgrade its driver education program by incorporating information about texting into the curriculum. September 19, 2012 was “It Can Wait-No Texting While Driving” day. Events at Wharton High School included the showing of a documentary about how texting has directly impacted people, as well as a computer driving simulator.
