Prom and spring go together like fall and football.
To help ensure a safe prom night, Mount Dora High School students will learn firsthand the consequences of driving under the influence. The Lake County Community Traffic Safety Team has scheduled a mock DUI crash next week at the high school to serve as a sobering reminder for teens to consider the implications of drinking and driving.
CTST will be hosting the realistic scene with high school juniorsandseniors at the school’s football field to show the impact of alcohol-related traffic accidents. “Through a dramatization of a DUI crash, the program provides a real-life glimpse into the serious ramifications of impaired driving,” said Noble Olasimbo, Chairperson of the CTST. “Through this event, we hope to help encourage teens never to drink and drive.”
The mock crash is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 14 at the high school.
