Driving Under the Influence and Other Dangers (Grades 6-8)

When you add alcohol and drugs to the inexperience of young drivers, it's no surprise that the result is often disaster. Underage drinking is involved in nearly half of all car crashes, and that's not the only dangers teens face if they decide to engage in substance use. In this module we talk about how alcohol and other drugs can contribute to many teen tragedies, such as teen car accidents, youth suicides, violence, injuries, and sexual assaults.
