"EYES" will be on teen driving this weekend

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Teen drivers beware this weekend, all "EYES" will be on your driving.

Many law enforcement agencies across the state will be taking part in a Mobile EYES campaign from Friday through Saturday.  EYES stands for Every Youth Exhibiting Safety. 

The effort will focus on the new anti-texting laws, as well as seat belt use and speed. Officers will also be watching for teens drinking and driving, as the homecoming season is upon us.

The Centers for Disease Control reports motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, accounting for one in three teen deaths.
