LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Every 22 minutes someone dies in an alcohol-related accident.
With prom and graduation right around the corner for a lot of students, Arkansas Children's Hospital is working to warn teens about the serious dangers of drinking and driving.
April is Alcohol Awareness Month and Distracted Driving Awareness Month and ACH's Injury Prevention Center is holding a Mock Sobriety Check Point at Sylvan Hills High School.
Students will be presented a Teen Driving Contract with a list of conditions (using seat belts, not speeding, not driving drunk) and a list of consequences for violating those rules.
