YOVASO kicks off "Arrive Alive" campaign

Young drivers encouraged to drive safely during prom season & summer vacations

ROANOKE, Va. - Young drivers in Roanoke County are taking the pledge to drive safely.


On Monday, "Youth of Virginia Speak Out" (YOVASO) kicked off their" Arrive Alive" campaign.


Students all over the county signed banners; promising to buckle up and not text and drive.


Students say this reminder is really important, especially as prom season and summer vacation approaches.

"We like for people to be safe. We like for them to buckle up.  We like for them to arrive alive at prom, not get in a wreck or accident.  We just don't like students to suffer the consequences, and I hope they can learn," said Rachel Davis, a student with the Hidden Valley High School Prevention Club.

According to YOVASO, more than 42,000 crashes involved teen drivers between 2012 and 2016.
