Anti-texting and driving campaign at Eastlake High School

Eastlake High School in Sammamish, WAEastlake High School in Sammamish, WA

My name is Margot Smith and I am a TADD supporter. I have already started a campaign at my high school, Eastlake High School, in hopes of making an impact on my peers.

The distracted driving problem has been around forever, but has become an increasingly big problem for my generation due to intense cell phone and text messaging usage. This sparked my interest in putting a stop to this negative behavior.

The campaign will officially begin at Eastlake this Thursday, May 27. On this day I will be working with the Swerve Driving team to to stand outside my school’s entrance and tally the number of distracted drivers entering school. This will be useful data for the pamphlet/brochure I will be making for students, as well as for our school’s assembly next year. Along with this, I am working to put together a design for a window sticker students can display on the back of their cars. This is just the start to a wonderful campaign. I’ll post more about the campaign after the Drive Nice Day on Thursday. Wish me luck 🙂
