CDPHP, Albany Schools look to stop texting while driving
ALBANY -- Students are taking the pledge to make the roads safe for everyone.
CDPHP partnered up with the Albany City School District to make sure that teens aren't texting when they are behind the wheel.
For every pledge signed, the health insurance company is donating one dollar to the Albany Fund for Education. The fund helps support educational programs within the school district.
With 13% of teen drivers admitting to texting at the time of an accident, CDPHP hopes to increase awareness about this important issue.
