Across the United States, senior students are about to graduate and planning what to wear and do for their proms. Unfortunately, prom night is known as an evening of possible bad decisions. This is why a Tennessee high school used its Students Against Destructive Decisions gathering to illustrate the consequences of irresponsible decisions to the students of the school by showing them what being in car accidents is really like.
On a recent Friday in April, the students of the high school witnessed an enactment of exactly what happens in a fatal accident. The enactment simulated a fatal accident in which a number of people died, and it focused on illustrating the consequences of both distracted driving and drunk driving. Students were asked to act as victims, who, in some cases, had to be cut from cars, while others acted as parents looking for their children at an accident scene.
