Seems younger and younger kids just can't wait to drive.
Tuesday some middle schoolers got a serious lesson about why distracted driving is so dangerous.
Eighth graders at Marietta Middle School spent health class getting a first look at the dangers of impaired and distracted driving.
Students drove golf karts around the field, wearing a pair of "drunk goggles" for one lap and then texted on a cellphone for the following lap.
Health teachers and parents say the sixth year program is designed to help students use good judgement on the road ahead.
The program runs twice a year at Marietta Middle School.
Cell phones were added to the course two years ago.
The program coincides with "Red Ribbon Week", which encourages students to live a healthy lifestyle.
