Safe Driving Presentation by Mr. Norman Miller

Saint Francis Counselor Amber McConnel, Mr. Miller, and Counselor Chris Fix

On April 19th a presentation on Safe Driving was given by Mr.Norman Miller, a local attorney. Mr. Miller’s presentation was part of a nationwide effort during the month of April 2012, which is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The goals of this effort are to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving and help our students make safer driving decisions.

During the presentation, Mr. Miller spoke to our students about the many types of driver distractions and discussed their experiences with distracted driving. Mr. Miller also explored strategies for speaking up when someone is a passenger and their driver starts to practice unsafe driving behaviors. Students should be aware of the consequences of distracted driving and understand how we can drive safer by keeping cell phones with us for emergencies, but not using them while driving, texting or making and receiving calls.

Thank you to the Saint Francis Counseling Department for coordinating this very important presentation.
