Once again, Safe America and Montlick Associates will spread awareness on Dangerous Driving Decisions to juniors and seniors at Charles Drew High School on Tuesday, October 25. The two organizations work together to warn teeanagers of the dangers of texting while driving, speeding, and driving under the influence.
In their programs, students get to hear from people who have suffered consequences of dangerous and distracted driving. They also get to better understand law enforcement's role when an officer believes a drive is under the influence.
The students get to use simulators to see what it is like to be involved in a crash. They also get to sign pledges to not text and drive. In addition, there is a banner students sign that stays in their school cafeteria as a reminder to not text and drive.
