The principal of a school in America has taken actions into his own hands and is trying to demonstrate to his pupils the seriousness of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

He aims to pull one pupil out of class every 15 minutes across two days in order to represent the national statistic that every 15 minutes somebody dies as a result of drunk driving.

The event will cost in excess of $10, 000 as police officers, paramedics and coroners attend the school to enforce the seriousness of driving under the influence. However, Principal Goddard feels it is well worth it especially as he has witnessed many young people die due to this including his own daughter’s boyfriend.
