Txt U L8R Spring Program
Texting while driving has quickly become one of the greatest hazards on the road. It causes 1.6 million car accidents, 330,000 injuries per year, and 7 teen deaths every single day. That's why the University of Vermont Medical Center and the Clinical Simulation Laboratory at the UVM College of Medicine created "TXT U L8R," a unique program designed to discourage individuals from texting while driving. Key elements include a demonstration of an advanced driving simulator, a presentation of a realistic trauma scenario, a testimonial from the victim of an accident caused by a teen driver who was texting, and a demonstration of several smartphone apps designed to prevent texting while driving.
