MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The State Patrol is again visiting Wisconsin high schools to alert young people about the dangers of texting while driving.

School assemblies are set for September 19th at Waukesha South High School and La Crosse Logan High. Similar events will take place later in other communities.

Since 2010, AT&T and the AAA have helped the State Patrol hold events in 25 Wisconsin communities.

Texting while driving has been against the law in Wisconsin since December first of 2010 – but surveys and occasional crashes tell us that many of us have not gotten the message, or we refuse to hear it.
