Texting and driving seminar visits South Aiken High School

Texting and driving seminar visits South Aiken High School

Students at South Aiken High School are no strangers to texting.

Reid Sanders, a lawyer with Vic Hawk Law Group, says high school students are the focus of the Send Could Be the End campaign.

"High school kids always feel like they're invincible, just like some adults. But they're more prone to technology, more prone to texting and driving versus the older generation," Sanders says.

The two sessions today showed students how taking their eyes off the road, even for a second, could be dangerous.

"Just because something is not illegal to do, doesn't mean it's the right thing to do," Sanders says.

Videos and group activities help students see that texting and driving can easily be avoided.

Sanders says the goal of the campaign is to try and stop a death that should never happen.

After the sessions, students took a pledge saying they would stop texting and driving.

"You know, once something is in writing it means a little more. You're not going to go after people if they break it, but it's a self given pledge that says I'm not going to do it. Then hopefully people won't," says Sanders.

The law firm is hoping to continue getting pledges across the CSRA from people of all ages.
