According to an article on wsav.com, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO) is hitting the schools to spread the message about safe driving and making good choices when driving.
The Traffic Enforcement Unit of the ECSO visited with the Youth Advisory Council at Effingham High last night and at South Effingham High on Wednesday. They stressed the importance of seat belts as well as not texting and driving using video with footage from real wrecks and PSAs showing how life altering a wreck can be and how many lives can be affected in a matter of seconds.
In an effort to remind students about the importance of safety behind the wheel, deputies sometimes perform seatbelt checks as students leave school.
Great job, ECSO in spreading the message of safe driving!
