High school Interact Clubs in North Fulton target teen texting, driving

Cambridge, Independence, Milton clubs raising awareness of 'distracted driving'

November 13, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Interact Clubs from Cambridge, Independence and Milton high schools have made the dangers of texting and calling while driving a focus in their respective schools.

The clubs filmed videos, set up awareness campaigns and held pledge signing events at school and around the community during the month of October.

The goal is to raise awareness about distracted driving and to get a commitment from their club members and peers to put their cellphones away while driving and drive distraction-free.

The Distracted Driving Campaign Challenge is run by the Rotary Club of Alpharetta, and all three of the club's affiliated Interact Clubs were encouraged to participate.

The challenge allows Interact Clubs from three area high schools to earn funds for community service projects through collecting the most distracted driving pledges, creating videos about distracted driving and running awareness campaigns with press releases, signage, Facebook and Twitter messages.

"Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving," said Mary Ulich, Alpharetta Rotary's youth service director. "We are focusing on texting and phone calls while driving as this is a high distraction for teens in our community. Our Interact Clubs at Cambridge, Independence and Milton are working hard in October to bring awareness to this community problem. And in the process, they can earn up to $500 for their community service projects."
