BROWNSVILLE, Minn. (WKBT) - Three local teenagers were recognized Monday for their efforts to improve driving safety among their peers.

The La Crescent high school seniors were awarded the 'Traffic Safety Champion Award for Outstanding Teen Leadership.'

They were honored for creating a video urging other teens to speak out about driving safety issues.

"At the end of the video they showed how could we have changed this scenario. And by the passenger speaking up and stating, 'No, your text can wait. We'll be there in 10 minutes.' And then they get there safely. I think that really drove home the whole message that we're trying to portray out here,” said Houston County Sheriff Mark Inglett.

The La Crescent teens are encouraging community members to speak up for their safety and the safety of their peers.
