9-year-old asks motorists to stop texting while driving


Follow The Republic:


A 9-year-old Columbus girl has started a petition asking motorists to refrain from texting while driving.

Her plea: "Keep me alive, don't text and drive."

Kila Seaver, who attends Southside Elementary School, said she decided to make a petition and posters about texting and driving to increase awareness about the dangerous practice.

The girl said her inspiration came after a friend's sister died in a car accident involving a driver using a cell phone.
