The Pleasanton Unified School District and the Pleasanton Police Department will continue their "Every 15 Minutes" program at Amador Valley High School again today.
The event is for high school juniors and seniors from Amador Valley and Dublin's Valley Christian School.
A high impact anti-DUI program, "Every 15 Minutes" derives from the frequency at which a person is killed in an alcohol- or drug-related collision in the United States, said Pleasanton police officer Steven Ayers.
The program aims to teach young adults about the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Part of the program involved a mock fatal traffic collision on Del Valle Parkway adjacent to the high school, that was held yesterday.
The collision simulated a DUI crash involving young adults, in which several were killed. Paramedics, firefighters, police officers and other emergency personnel handled the mock crash just as they would have in a real collision. High schoolers had the opportunity to observe the emergency crews in action and witness the arrest of the intoxicated driver.
A follow-up assembly is scheduled for today at Amador Valley's gymnasium.
