Yonkers PD teaches students about distracted driving

The Yonkers Police Department Training Unit is taking a computer program to schools to show students the dangers of distracted driving.



The simulated program is designed to distract users through a series of tests.



State Farm insurance donated $20,000 to make sure young drivers get the message and pass it along.



The initiative is part of the Yonkers Police Department's "Eyes on the Road" program that started last year.
