Our world seems to be over run by technology. There is a time and place, but the drivers' seat is not the time, nor place. OMG and LMAO on a bright little screen in a dark moving car distracts the driver – which is you. You know who you are and so do we. Here at Orem High, we want our students to enjoy their lives – free of fatalities. Do not be the person we have to cry over, because we will. No texting or talking on your cell phones while your driving. If you have an emergency, pull off the road. Otherwise, It Can Wait!
