Saugus High School students will experience the emotionally charged Every 15 Minutes program this week as part of a community effort to curb reckless driving.

The program will take place Thursday and Friday at the school and is organized by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station and city of Santa Clarita.

Several students will be taken from classes Thursday, as if they had been "lost" in a tragic incident. They will be joined by other student program participants at a driving under the influence simulated collision scene, which will be set up near the school for the students to view, depicting fatalities and serious injuries to several students.

Centurion Way will be closed from 11:15 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. Thursday as part of the Every 15 Minutes program.

Participating students will visit the Youth Grove at Central Park and Eternal Valley Memorial Park and will experience a simulated court proceeding that convicts the reckless drivers.

The two-day program finishes Friday with a school-wide assembly featuring students and families affected by reckless driving.
