NE Seattle teens, drinking & driving

According to the 2012 Healthy Youth Survey, almost a quarter of NE Seattle* high school seniors report riding in a car with someone who has been drinking. 

Last June, Seattle's Child magazine published "Anna's Lesson", a story about a NE Seattle teenager who drove drunk and suffered life-threatening consequences.  On April 25, the Prevention WINS coalition will launch a 15-minute video about underage drinking and driving in NE Seattle.  Following the video, NE Seattle community members, including parents and youth, will talk about their experiences and answer questions from participants.  For more information, contact Prevention WINS.
