Description

This program dramatizes that most teens overestimate their driving skills and underestimate the risks involved in texting while driving, driving drowsy and driving under the influence. True to life stories accentuate these very real dangers. A young woman describes how a driver who was texting caused a crash that killed her parents and left her with severe injuries. Another teen describes falling asleep while driving and how the resulting crash left him wheel-chair bound for life. A trauma center nurse and a police officer describe the kinds of injuries they have seen for teenage victims of crashes due to alcohol and drugs. The film also shows teens participating in a driving skills program that safely exposes them to a variety of hazards and teaches them the importance of developing safe driving skills.
