Teens take action against distracted driving with license plate contest

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) -- The DMV is looking for the public's input on a new license plate designed by teenagers.

High schoolers across the state, including in Southwest Virginia, submitted their ideas on how to alert drivers to the dangers of distracted driving.

Now you can vote on the finalists.

"We received over 200 entries from across the state, and our panels of judges have narrowed them down to eight finalists, so the public can go to dmvnow.com/vaplatecontest now until March 20th to vote for their favorite," Brandy Brubaker of the Virginia DMV says.

The winner's design will be made into a license plate that drivers will actually see on the road.
