The Oregon-Davis organization, Students Against Destructive Decisions, or SADD, are raising awareness about the dangers are texting and driving this week.

The school resource officers are helping the students in learning the dangers of texting and driving. The officers have a course for the kids to drive to show what impairment is caused when a person texts and drives at the same time. Students will have to maneuver a golf cart through cones while texting to complete the course.

To help students be aware of what can happen when someone is texting and driving, a wrecked car is being displayed at the entrance of the school to serve as a reminder.

SADD students will have a presentation on Friday at noon to complete the observance of Don’t Text and Drive Awareness Week.
