Bowyer, Cassill Talk to Teens About Driving while Distracted

 
Richmond, VA — With too much to do and too little time, motorists are increasingly taking this “get it all done” attitude to the roads and committing DWD – Driving While Distracted. The problem is especially bad for young drivers.

Who: NASCAR drivers Clint Bowyer and Landon Cassill, Superintendent of Henrico Co. Schools Fred Morton IV and the President of Richmond International Raceway, Doug Fritz, speak to the community about the dangers of driving while distracted.

When: Thursday, May 1, 2008 at 4 p.m.

Where: Hermitage High School
8301 Hungary Spring Road
