"Driving While Distracted" Event Planned

Arkansas Tech Public Safety, CREW, and the Alcohol and Other Drug Committee are teaming up to educate students about “Driving While Distracted.”

Because texting while driving is becoming a national concern, these organizations are conducting a program about text messaging while driving on Monday, Oct. 11 from 4-7 p.m. in the Doc Bryan Courtyard.

“I can see that ‘Driving While Distracted’ is a top priority for national lawmakers everywhere as more information becomes available about teens and college students relying on text messaging as their main form of communication,” Pete Kelly said.

For more information about the event contact Pete Kelly, director of evening programs and spirit squads, at pkelly@atu.edu or call 479-964-0550.
