Students get course in distracted driving

Students from Pikeville High School participated in a crash course on distracted driving on Wednesday.

The Pikeville Police Department, with the help of a few other agencies, took the students through various scenarios.

Simulations included drunk driving and texting while driving, all as they drove a golf cart through a course inside the expo center.

Officers say this is always an important lesson for teens but especially this time of year with upcoming proms and graduations.
