HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Wednesday, students at Jones Valley Elementary weighed in on an important topic. They wanted to get to the bottom of a big problem in our community, and everywhere, unfortunately — to determine who is responsible for stopping distracted driving.
We feel very strongly about this cause. WHNT News 19 is in the midst of a year-long campaign against distracted driving. Every day, people are injured or killed in wrecks because of distracted drivers. These can include drivers who are texting, eating, checking their watch — you name it — taking your eyes off the road for just a second can cause a wreck.
The school’s debate was organized by Morris, King & Hodge, our partners in our Distracted Driving Project. WHNT News 19’s David Kumbroch was one of the judges.
We’ll have more coverage Wednesday on WHNT News 19 at 6:30 p.m.
