School leaders and local agencies came together Friday to show students the dangers of drinking while driving and texting while driving.
A mock DWI crash was held at Eastridge High School Friday morning.
School leaders say mock crashes are helpful, but more needs to be done.
Mary Grow, Eastridge High School Principal, said, “I believe they're getting it. Some of the data shared with us earlier was that there's a reduction in these, which is a good sign. The fact that they're happening, we are just stressing the point of reminding students the dangers that lie ahead or could potentially lie ahead if they make a bad choice.”
School leaders say they also talk with students about what to do to insure their safety.
