Crisp Sheriff: Don't Text and Drive

CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Students in Crisp County are encouraged not to text and drive, as the new school year starts there Friday. Sheriff Billy Hancock is launching a new campaign called 'Arrive Alive' Don't Text and Drive.

Billboards will be put up at the football stadium and entrances of schools. Teen drivers say they can influence their peers by following the campaign message.

“You have to think about it. You're in the road with many other people and your life is just as important. You don't want to hurt anyone else as well as yourself,” said Kesia Wilson.

“If all our athletes are not texting and driving and we set the example for other people they won't text and drive,” said Whitt Campbell.

Sheriff Hancock will present the don't text and drive campaign at the school board meeting tonight.
