Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Dozens of Vestal High School students signed a pledge to keep their eyes on the road while driving.

By signing a form, the young drivers promised not to text and drive.

"I think it's really important for young people our age because we're just getting drivers licenses, things like that,” Vestal junior, Ellen Armstrong said. “They don't know the real danger of using distractions when they're driving."

Students that signed up were given green wristbands as a reminder of their pledge

WBNG is a co-sponsor of the Eyes Forward campaign.
