NewsChannel 11's B.U.S.T. safety campaign picking up steam

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11's B.U.S.T. Campaign to buckle up and stop texting is picking up steam and has already caught the attention of some state and federal lawmakers.

The area wide public safety campaign launched Friday in Seagraves and Denver City. The challenge to driving high school students is to promise buckle up and to stop texting while driving, but the challenge goes even further than the students. Parents and teachers and anyone else that is wanting to take the pledge is welcome to sign.

So far, 171 area students and teachers across the South Plains have pledged to be safer drivers as part of a new area wide safety campaign. Seven signed in Seagraves and 74 signed in Denver City Friday as the BUST pledge began.

Pete was in Roosevelt on Monday to challenge the students, parents and teachers there.

Pete will be challenging all South Plains area schools. If you want Pete come speak at your school, you can contact him here at the station (806) 744-1414. To print out your own pledge form, click on the link below.

Coming up tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10, more on what Congressman Randy Neugebauer and State Representative Joe Heflin have to say about B.U.S.T.
