Impact made by texting, driving program

The "Every 15 Minutes" program that was recently presented at North Muskegon High School in Michigan was reported to be provoking and emotional. The exercise demonstrated to teens the very serious and often deadly consequences of distracted driving.

Texting and drinking while driving are both very dangerous. The program is named for the staggering statistic that someone is killed every 15 minutes by a driver who is distracted or drunk and causes an accident.

Texting while driving is often cited as one of the primary reasons for distracted driving. But distracted driving can also result from distractions within the car. This can be a particular problem for teenagers who may still be working to master their driving skills. Sources outside the car can also cause a distraction. A driver puts themselves, their passengers and everyone else on the roadway at risk anytime they chose not to devote their full attention to the road and the traffic around them.

The influential program was supported by many organizations in West Michigan and numerous individuals also stepped up to support the program. Sponsors included local businesses, law enforcement agencies and private individuals.

The parent committee expressed appreciation to all of the staff and administration of North Muskegon High School for their support and encouragement of the program. The "Every 15 Minutes" committee hopes that other schools will soon participate in this important event so that every teen in West Michigan can see feel the impact and see the consequences that their decisions can make on their friends, their families, and their future.
