A unique program designed to inform teens about the harsh realities that
drinking and driving has been popping up throughout the US.
According to the
Parent Dish, a program named “ Every 15 Minutes” makes a huge impact on
teens as they learn what occurs when you drink and drive or even drive
and text. By stimulating a drunk driving accident in high school parking
lots, teens are able to see the shockingly realistic scenes of the “victims”
being taken away on stretchers.
On top of this, a masked “Grim Reaper” pulls select students
out of class every 15 minutes to symbolize that student’s
death due to drunk driving. To set the point home, officers read obituary letters that have been
written by the student’s parents. The student must remain silent
for 24 hours and cannot call, text or speak. Although the teens can return
to their normal lives once their 24 hours are up, they understand that most
DUI-related accident victims are not so lucky.
