On Monday, October 19th, the Zero Fatalities organization presented their “Don’t Drive Stupid” program to Spanish Fork High School. They held an assembly and taught the students about the importance of many things while driving such as always wearing a seatbelt and staying alert. They taught that the most common way teens get distracted is from texting while driving. Reggie Shaw came to speak to the students as part of the program and he told them the dangers of texting while driving because he had a firsthand experience and learned it the hard way. The students learned a lot from the program and it made a big impact on them. Karianne Nelson, a senior at Spanish Fork High School said, “It scared me. I will definitely never text while driving again!” The students enjoyed having them come and made them want to be safer on the road.
