The Woodbridge Police Department (WPD), Traffic Enforcement Unit, will host “Don’t Be A Statistic” – a pre-prom DWI and distracted-driving awareness program geared toward high school students at Woodbridge, John F. Kennedy Memorial and Colonia High Schools. With prom season around the corner, the WPD provides information to educate high school Senior’s about the dangers and consequences of DWI and distracted driving.
“Don’t Be a Statistic” features students from each high school playing out scenes from a drunk driving car wreck using actual cars wrecked in a drunk driving accident, police vehicles, and ambulances. “Don’t Be a Statistic” illustrates the potential consequences brought about by driving while intoxicated and distracted driving as part of the outreach to encourage young people to make positive decisions at their prom and thereafter.
The event will be held May 27 at 11 a.m. at Woodbridge High School’s football field; June 1 at 8 a.m. at JFK Memorial High School’s football field; and June 3 at 11 a.m. at Colonia High School’s football field.
