Community Leaders in Unison: Get the Message: Don’t Text and Drive

Glen Cove community leaders and the Police Department joined forces recently and in unison warned the public not to talk or text on a cellphone while driving a motor vehicle.  In just a few days, Glen Cove students will begin a new school year and drivers of all ages are warned that police will be actively looking for motorists who are driving distracted by texting or talking on a cellphone.

The use of portable electronic devices while driving includes: viewing, playing games, composing or sending a text; reading something on the device; and using the device to send e-mails. Texting is by far the most dangerous form of distracted driving because it requires visual, manual and cognitive attention by the driver.

The penalty for being convicted of texting while driving is currently five (5) driver violation points.  The Glen Cove Court will also impose a monetary fine of $150.00 plus $88.00 in surcharges to those convicted.  Those with a junior driver’s license or with a learner’s permit will lose their license /permit for at least 60 days upon conviction.

In a recent survey, the National Highway Traffic Administration found that 10% of all drivers under the age of 20 who were involved in fatal car crashes were reported as “distracted” at the time of the accident. The best way to end distracted driving is to educate all drivers on the danger it poses. Eyes on the road don’t text or talk on a cellphone while driving a motor vehicle.

Sixth-grade students entering Robert M. Finley Middle School were welcomed with food and fun at the district’s annual sixth grade orientation on August 27. Students were greeted by faculty members and listened to a presentation led by Finley Middle School Principal Nelson Iocolano.

“We think its important for students and faculty to spend time and share a meal together just like a family would,” he said, “because here at Finley Middle School we want to foster a nurturing “family style” environment.”

After the presentation, Michelle Nelfi, Glen Cove High School National Junior Honors Society member, led the entire sixth-grade class in a scavenger hunt around the building. Students were separated into groups and worked as a team to check off every item on the list. Students also had an opportunity to test their skills at opening their lockers. After completing the scavenger hunt, students and faculty enjoyed a traditional barbeque spread outside in the courtyard.
