Juniors and seniors at Mineola High School learned of the specific dangers of distracted driving during an It Can Wait campaign presented by Nassau County Police Department, Congresswoman Kathleen Rice and AT&T. A nationwide campaign, it included a presentation from Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder with statistics and information specific to Nassau County. It focused on the visual, cognitive and manual districations any driver can face and the importance of remaining alert to your own behaviors, and others. The presentation concluded with a call to action, asking students to sign a pledge promising to not engage in distracted driving, as well as to act as ambassadors to continuing the message.
