How/Why:
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a Prom DUI Awareness event at Dunedin High School on Friday, May 23, 2014 beginning at 9:15 a.m. The “Ghost-Out” event shows students the deadly consequences of drinking and driving.

The theme for this year’s statewide “Ghost-Out” is “Live to See Your Future.” The “Grim Reaper” will visit Dunedin High School and designate students as ghosts for the day in memory of the 105 weekly traffic deaths involving intoxicated drivers.

During the “Ghost-Out” assembly there will be guest speakers from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.), the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Principal Reuben Hepburn and students from Dunedin High School.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of deaths for teens in the U.S. Each year, more than 5,000 teens (ages 16-20) are killed in passenger vehicle crashes. This event is used as a tool to encourage safe driving to students and to teach them to never get behind the wheel while under the influence.

Media is welcome to attend the event.
