MADISON, WI (WSAU) - You might start seeing a Three Lakes high school senior in some television and radio commercials starting today.
Austin Wierschke is featured in a commercial aimed at preventing texting and driving. Wierschke is the reigning two time LG U.S. National Texting Champion.
He agrees with the Department of Transportation that you can’t safely text while driving. He often gives that message to his classmates.
April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The penalties are expensive for texting and driving, and Wisconsin has already sent drivers to prison for causing fatal accidents while texting.
