TXTUL8R at UVM Medical Center

TXT U L8R at UVM Medical Center, November 6

Texting while driving is one of the greatest hazards on the road. Every day, approximately 9 people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured in crashes involving distracted driving. That is 1.6 million car accidents and 330,000 injuries per year! That’s why the University of Vermont Medical Center and the Clinical Simulation Laboratory at the UVM College of Medicine created “TXT U L8R,” a unique program designed to discourage individuals from texting while driving. This program is beneficial for new drivers as well as their parents. Key elements include a presentation of a realistic trauma scenario and a testimonial from the victim of an accident caused by a teen driver who was texting.

Everyone is invited to the free TXT U L8R event on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 6:00pm-7:30pm in the Sullivan Classroom at the UVM Medical Center Education Pavilion. Parking is convenient in the UVM Medical Center Garage. The TXT U L8R presentation is especially powerful for young drivers.
