Death stalks high school corridors to warn against car crashes


A student group at an American school has taken a novel approach to minimising the threat of car accidents, featuring students dressed as Death, the Grim Reaper, stalking the corridors and marking fellow students as 'dead'.

The initiative by the Long Island high school group 'Students Against Destructive Decisions' is intended to bring home the message of the personal injury and related damage that drink-driving can bring to a community following a car crash.

The campus' faculty advisor says "This event has an enormous impact for a terrible reason... It's not fiction or imaginary. It's real life and death."

Students who are 'killed' or 'injured' at the hands of these Reapers have pink index cards with alcohol-related car accident statistics tied to their wrists and are not permitted to speak for the rest of the day. Previously, SADD events have displayed a coffin and a wrecked car on school grounds.

These hard-hitting enactments of the risk of a car accident are yet to hit the UK, but the organisation's message, which it states as "to provide students with the best prevention and intervention tools possible to deal with the issues of underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving and other destructive decisions", may easily cross the Atlantic.
