As South Hagerstown High School students walked down the main hallway to leave school Friday, 121 students in red shirts, representing teenagers who have died from distracted driving accidents, stood on either side of them and did not say a word. They held up signs such as “I wanted to be a veterinarian” or “I wanted to graduate,” in addition to providing statistics about distracted driving accidents. Many of the students entering the hallway who first acted surprised, making jokes and talking loud about the situation, began to quiet down and read the signs as they continued to walk down the hallway, with many of them silent by the time they went outside.
