Driving Course Demonstrations Raise Awareness About Distracted Driving

Students at Burmingham High School listened to stories of family members who lost relatives to distracted driving.

Those engaging in distracted driving could pay a minimum 160 dollar fine per ticket.

On Wednesday in Van Nuys, CHP warned students at Burmingham High School about distracted driving.

Last year alone, 13,000 accidents in California were from texting. Driving accidents have become the number one cause of teenage deaths.
