PARSIPPANY — On the morning of Thursday, April 19 students at Parsippany Hills High School took part in an active drunk driving demonstration where police cars, ambulances and fire trucks acted out a drunk driving scene. Students watched in the rain and the weather added to the seriousness of the event.
Every 15 Minutes is a program focusing on high school juniors and seniors, which challenges them to think about drinking, driving, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions. Along with alcohol-related crashes, it focuses on the impact that their decisions would have on family and friends.
The Every 15 Minutes program originated in Canada and was soon adopted in the United States first in Spokane, Washington.
