VIP Accident Prevention Program Comes to Piedmont
Juniors and seniors at Piedmont participated in the VIP for a VIP program on September 8th. The Vehicle Injury Prevention for a Very Important Person program was presented by volunteers from the local fire, EMS, police, and State Highway Patrol agencies. Students attended a morning session where they heard speakers from emergency services and parents of teenage accident victims talk about their experiences. In the afternoon, students watched a reenactment of a fatal automobile accident. The message to the students was clear: wear your seat belt, put your phones up, obey speed limits, and never drink and drive! For more information about the VIP for a VIP program, visit their website at www.vipforavip.com/ or Like them on Facebook to see posts from families and friends of victims of teen vehicle fatalities.
