Salt Lake City Students Pledge Not to Text and Drive

posted March 13, 2012 | by

The students at Judge Memorial High School in Salt Lake City were told of the dangers of texting and driving by motivational speaker Chad Hymas on Thursday, March 8, 2012. Fox 13 News reported that Chad Hymas lectured the students, in a motivational speech, of the dangers of texting and driving and told them that texting while driving is worse than drunk driving. Statistics show that 6 people died in the Salt Lake area due to texting-related accidents, and 29 were reported to be critically injured. Hymas learned about the dangers of distracted driving first hand in an accident that made him lose the use of his legs. He states that his accident proves to others that “you can’t keep your mind on two things at once.” At the end of his speech he had the students at the high school sign a pledge saying that they will not text and drive. Hymas says he plans to attend 28 other high schools in the Salt Lake area.

As a Utah personal injury attorney, I can definitely say from what I’ve observed that texting and driving is worse than drunk driving in terms of its frequency and the serious injuries and fatalities that come from it. I encourage Chad Hymas to continue giving his speeches at other schools. I think it is a great thing to have the students sign this pledge.
