Distracted Driving Class at PHS

Distracted Driving

The Virginia State Police recently visited Poquoson High School with a Distracted Driving unit.  One hundred fifty one students in the drivers education classes went through the program over a two-day period. There are 3,450 lives lost by distracted driving.  At least eight people die each day from distracted driving. The average text takes four seconds.  Four seconds in which you cannot truly focus on what is going on in front of you.  Pictured:  Abby Barefoot portrays a loud passenger in order to distract Jordan Jones.
