PROM OR GRADUATION PREPARATION

Many Anti-Drunk Driving Campaigns have made their way to New York’s educational efforts. As a result of the combination of the advertising, legislative change and Police enforcement we have seen the fatality figure fall over the years. Many commercials have been put to air over the last 30 years. We all have our favorites, with images and words that are burned into our memories. These commercials have created a culture of road safety that consistently results in a lower fatality rates. Remember your prom experience>Click here for graphic video of DWI related crashes.

Remember your prom experience?  While some things have changed, other pressures are exactly the same.

Many adolescents go to the prom with someone they don’t know well, or know only as a classmate or friend. And, since most prom activities are often un-chaperoned, many teens may feel pressured to engage in inappropriate behavior with their prom date. Many teens will use alcohol and/or drugs to cope with the stresses they face during prom night. In addition, the use of these substances can cause relaxation, loss of inhibitions and altered perceptions. It can also cause them to make questionable choices and get involved in other behaviors that put their health and safety at risk.
