Pics Of The Day #373

Monday was Grim Reaper Day at Staples High School. The Teen Awareness Group sponsors the annual event warning of the dangers of drinking and driving. “Victims” (like this student) were pulled out of class throughout the day by police officers and EMTs — harsh reminders of the 28 Americans killed every day by drunk drivers.

As part of the message, this scene greeted students as they arrived on campus.

    Anything to eliminate drunk driving is a great idea…but I think the loss of license, fines and attorneys fees are probably a greater deterrent… And yes…TEXTING is probably WORSE than drunk driving…it should be a heavy fine and ninety day suspension for the FIRST OFFENSE !

    • Every few days, I get a summary of all the police arrests. The number of people in their 40s, 50s and 60s arrested for cellphone use while driving is FAR greater than those of teenagers. And many of them are for their 2nd offense. I’m just sayin’…
