As the school year comes to a close, concerns rise about the potential for students to be involved in DUI-related crashes.
This week, a program at Atascadero High School is helping teens learn about the dangers first hand.
The program is called “Every 15 Minutes.” As part of the two-day scenario, students are removed from class every 15 minutes by law enforcement officers and obituaries are read.
The high school football field was staged Tuesday as the scene of a DUI crash. Wednesday, the students will attend an assembly on the field to see first-hand the impacts of drinking and driving.
The same program was held earlier this month at Orcutt Academy High School and Cabrillo High School.
