Distracted driving lesson for local teens

Posted: Updated:
HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

Students at Liberty High School got some hands-on experience from professional drivers in a push to keep teenagers safe behind the wheel.

The Ford Driving Skills for Life Program took teens through an obstacle course of cones while distracting them with music, cell phones and drunk goggles.

They even altered the car to make it feel like it was handling on ice.

Statistically, most crashes involving teens happen because of driver distraction, speed and space management, poor car handling and hazard recognition.
