Speaker brings Drive to Save Lives to Wharton

Published September 17 2013

TAMPA — Cara Filler, the founder of the Drive to Save Lives Tour, spoke to Wharton High School students Monday about the possible outcomes from making a bad decision.

The Drive to Save Lives Tour addresses some of the choices some teens make involving distracted driving or driving too fast.

Filler was personally affected by someone making bad choices when her twin sister, Mairin, was killed in a car accident the day after their 18th birthday.

On Oct. 1, a new law banning texting and driving goes into effect in Florida.
