Txt U L8R Returns to UVM Medical Center April 22

Txt U L8R is a virtual event for new and experienced drivers. Hosted by the University of Vermont Medical Center, a Level 1 trauma center, it brings to life the realities they see resulting from distracted driving.

Distracted driving is a leading cause of preventable car crashes. Whether you recently got your permit or have been driving for decades, TXT U L8R will demonstrate the life-altering consequences of distracted driving and give you the tools to build better driving habits. This is a modified version of the in-person TXT U L8R presentation, and will include testimonies from a car crash survivor, medical staff, and Text Less Live More.

The virtual event is Thursday, April 22, 6-7pm. Register at or email
