LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - For years, we've seen public service announcements about texting while driving, but are people really getting the message? One student says, "I mean they're sad. You know, it's emotional. I just feel I've seen so many that you think it just won't happen."
THV11 News sat down with six teenage students at Sylvan High School in Sherwood, Arkansas. They admit, texting and driving is a big temptation for teenagers like themselves. "I don't do it all the time but sometimes I do text and drive and I admit that it is dangerous," Antonius Russell says.
