If Mayfield area teenagers didn’t already have enough reasons to avoid texting while driving, they got a few emphatic ones from a visiting congressman on Monday.

As part of U.S. Rep. David Joyce’s visit to Mayfield High School, the legislator commanded students to avoid the now illegal practice.

While students brought up privacy legislation and gay marriage during the question-and-answer segment, texting was a topic Joyce brought up on his own. Watch the video above to see how passionate he is on the topic.
