This afternoon the Virginia Tech Police Department teamed up with other local organizations to host a Community Day to spread awareness of the dangers of texting while driving, sober and drunk.
The event on the drill field brought out hundreds of people, not just students but also other community members. Displays ranged from police vehicles and VIN etching on vehicles, to Lifeguard 10 and even some food from local restaurants. Its an event that VTPD says is important for the police department.
This is the second year of this community day and it's an event they hope to continue in the future.
