We're taking a look at what local schools are doing to get teens to focus behind the wheel.

Students at Tollgate High School in Warwick took part in the attorney general's “It Can Wait” texting campaign.

They watched a video where people shared personal experiences about how texting and driving changed their lives.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin hopes to spread the message to students who are just starting to drive to put their phone away while behind the wheel.
