High Point, NC -- According to American Red Cross statistics, about 6,000 people per year are killed in wrecks where the driver is distracted. 

But today, the American Red Cross and the High Point Home School Association gave teens a special lesson on the danger of distracted driving and texting while driving. Highway Patrol Trooper Greg Ingram gave the lesson and said its all the same. "We look at it as being no different than eating while you're driving, talking with your passengers while you're driving, putting on makeup while your driving, its basically all in the same as distracted driving, however, cell phones right now is basically the technology of today."

State law prohibits drivers younger than 18 from using cell phones at all while behind the wheel.
