Prom and graduation season is quickly approaching for area high schoolers. While that is an exciting time, it brings about a certain risk.
St. Luke's Hospital worked with Maumee High School Wednesday to convince students that no matter how big the celebration, it is not worth drinking and driving.
To keep the message fresh, presenters used a multi-media presentation that included a drunk driving simulator.
Organizers say they just hope kids listened.
"We see so many times one school or another gets nipped with somebody who may pass away and we really just don't want that to happen," said Don Adamski, St. Luke's Substance Abuse Counselor.
The program, part of the National Save A Life Tour, also featured an empty coffin with the message "drunk driving victim" attached to it.
What do you think is the most effective way to get across the message of "Don't Drink and Drive"?
