Drunk Driving Prevention Program for Teenagers -- Temple City High


Teenage drunk driving PREVENTION PROGRAM



"Every 15 Minutes" Drunk Driving Prevention Program”

This program involves the simulation of several class members being involved in a traffic collision, with one being fatal.  The event begins with the victims/students being removed from class early in the school day by a grim reaper sheriff's deputy.  A flower will be placed in their chair without explanation for what is taking place.


At 11:00 a.m., a 911 phone call is broadcast over the school PA system reporting a serious traffic collision, after which all students and staff report to Temple City Blvd.  There will be a simulated two-vehicle traffic collision in which at least one of the pre-selected students is pronounced dead.  Several others have sustained non-life threatening injuries and are being transported to Arcadia Methodist Hospital.  One of the students will be given a field sobriety test and then arrested and booked at Temple Sheriff station.
