MONTICELLO - Over 100 students from Monticello High School, 334 S. Main St., will learn about the dangers of texting while driving and be encouraged to sign a pledge to never text behind the wheel at 10 a.m. Thursday. Monticello High School is teaming up with AT&T, AAA, the Wisconsin State Patrol and state Rep. Sondy Pope as part of the It Can Wait movement to remind students that text messages can wait until after driving. Students will learn about "#X," a social tool geared toward helping teens stop texting and driving.
