Students at Saugus High School took part in the Every 15 Minutes program on Thursday.

The simualted car crash encourages students to live the devastating experience of a drunken driving-related death on city streets.

The emotionally charged program exposes students to a realistic-looking mock collision that results in one participant jailed and one or more others dead, according to the scenario.

Every 15 Minutes is conducted at local high schools on a rotating basis in a bid to “dramatically instill teenagers with the consequences associated with drinking alcohol, reckless driving and life choices,” according to a news release about the event. “The program will challenge students to think about personal safety and the responsibility of making mature decisions.”
