The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is trying to reach inattentive drivers with help from those who are too young to drive. The D-O-T is now airing a TV spot produced by middle school students from Oneida. It started as a class project after students saw teens with drivers licenses and even adults putting on make-up, eating or talking or texting on phones while behind the wheel. D-O-T spokesman Mark Kantola says the ads release comes at a perfect time.
The D-O-T says out of 19-thousand-500 distracted driving crashes in Wisconsin, teenage drivers involved in nearly 3,800.
