HCHS students attended the state SAFE conference this week in Topeka. There were many great presenters and activities. Troopers from southwest and eastern Kansas presented information about distracted driving and brought a wreck simulator to demonstrate the dangers of it. The state attorney presented information about citations, cost of fines, and potential legal action related to wrecks caused by distracted driving. A mother shared her point of view regarding the loss of her 17 year old son because of drowsy driving and also talked about the importantce of sleep and how it impacts not only driving but also daily function.
Other activities include obstacle courses that simulated impaired driving situations and the Think Fast Presentation.
They learned so much and are excited to share it with HCHS in upcoming activities and assemblies.
