A national traffic-safety campaign will be available to teach teenagers about the dangers of texting and driving in Northwest Washington in 2013.
The Remember Alex Brown campaign was founded by a Texas family whose teen daughter, Alex Brown, died after texting while driving, group spokeswoman Beverly Mills said.
The group aims to educate teens about distracted driving to prevent more deaths.
The Alex Brown group plans to be in Northwest Washington the week of March 4, 2013, said Doug Gold, a Snohomish County sheriff's detective who investigates traffic collisions.
Their presentations are available for schools, churches and other community groups.
Gold is looking for groups, especially schools, who want help planning events for teens next year. Gold also runs "Driving It Home," a local traffic-safety program for teens.
The Alex Brown group also can plan a pep rally-style assembly that requires only a little preparation, he said.
