FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Students Against Drunk Driving club at Frankfort High School held their Every 15 Minutes program Friday.
The program consisted of a mock fatal crash to teach students the realities of drinking and driving. A student was taken out of class every 15 minutes during the day to represent that on average someone dies in a drunk driving crash every 15 minutes.
It has been four years since the last time Frankfort has held an Every 15 Minutes program.
FHS theater director Michael Taylor said he hopes the students realize they aren't invincible.
"Something like this, even though it may not make them wake up and be like 'I don't want that to happen,' I think it's very educational in the fact it says 'Wow this is actually what goes on,'" said Taylor. "It's something to say 'Hey be careful. We know you're kids, we know you're going to have a good time, just be careful please.'"
The program comes just before Frankfort High School's Prom this weekend in Lafayette.
