Letters: Students against distracted drivers
The students of the Leadership exploratory at Journey middle school are going to be out on the corner of Church and Sooke Road from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. holding up signs on June fourth for distracted driving . We will hold up signs during every red light.
Everyone is welcome to join us. We are doing this because people die everyday due to distracted driving. The most common reason is from being on your phone but also there are many other reasons like putting on makeup and or drinking coffee. It’s okay when you’re parked in a parking lot but not when you’re driving on the road. Please put your phone down when you are driving and think about the example you are setting for us kids because we are going to be adults someday too and we would like to survive to get there.
