ST. GEORGE -- At least 100 signs warning drivers not to text have gone up in Washington County this spring, thanks to the work of a family who lost a loved one to distracted driving.
Haley Warner tells The Spectrum 50 signs are up in Santa Clara and Ivins, and schools have purchased another 50.
The signs tell motorists about the $310 fine for texting while driving, and urge them not to drive distracted.
Warner's 56-year-old father, David Henson, was killed in March while walking along a St. George sidewalk with his wife. Police say a driver who was apparently texting rear-ended another vehicle and pushed it into the couple.
Henson's wife, Leslee, suffered major injuries.
Warner says the anti-texting sign project has helped her focus on something positive amid the tragedy.
