South Shelby High School, along with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, local officials and the Northeast Coalition for Roadway Safety, will be conducting a crash dramatization at 1:00 p.m. today (Tuesday, October 25th) at the high school.  The docudrama is designed to educate teens about the consequences of impaired and distracted driving. It was originally scheduled for earlier this month but was postponed until today.

“Often times teens think they are invincible,” said Dee Kirby, South Shelby FCCLA advisor. “We want to make every effort teach our teens the importance of making the right decisions on the roadway,” she added.

South Shelby juniors and seniors will reenact the traffic crash caused by impaired and distracted driving, complete with law enforcement and emergency medical services involvement.
