UW-Whitewater focuses on distracted drivers
UW-Whitewater officials are hoping a commitment contract will help students reduce distractions while driving.
Jessica Martinez, a Certified Medical Assistant at the university, says she was in an accident about eight years ago while she was distracted by electronic devices in her car. A recent news report made her decide to circulate contracts among the students at Whitewater.
Resident assistants across campus are encouraging students to sign.
