The Youth Safety Council of Vermont presents an eye-opening educational program that travels to schools throughout the state, creating first-hand experiences of the dangers of texting while driving. Students navigate a golf cart through a course of traffic cones, then drive the course a second time while texting. Their errors – the cones that they run into while texting  (parked cars! pedestrians!) make the dangers of texting and driving plain to understand. The YSC Turn Off Texting program is free to schools throughout Vermont, thanks in part to funding from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program and generous sponsors.
