      Lovingston, VA - All week, the Lovingston Volunteer Fire Department will be reminding young drivers about the dangers of texting and driving.

      It's launched a texting and driving awareness campaign using social media.

      The department will post pictures on its Facebook page of crashes caused by texting and driving, along with statistics.

      The most startling -- every day, eleven teens die in texting-related crashes.

      Volunteers also hope to meet with students at Nelson County High School sometime in the future, to explain the dangers first-hand.
