3/28/12 - Senator Saland speaks with a State Troooper who was staffing the distracted driving display and simulator set up in the LOB today. The display consists of a car that was involved in a serious accident caused by distracted driving. The nearly demolished car has been taken around to numerous schools and has been signed by students who have pledged not to text and drive. A good visual reminder with many proms, graduations and other functions happening in the coming months.
