GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- ‘Less Tears, More Years’ is a concept started by the Pottsboro community following the deaths of several teens on Texoma roads over the last few months. Now, Grayson County leaders are taking up that very same issue.
County commissioners met on Monday morning to talk about expanding the program to tighten the requirements of young drivers even further.
Many parents like Phil Johnson, who lost his daughter to an accident in May, say they feel it is necessary to prevent more deaths on the road.
"We need to teach more instruction for our young drivers before they get on the road and give them better programs to help prepare them for driving," Johnson said.
Commissioners have decided to back the Pottsboro community, who will take their fight to the Texas Legislature.
